At the Cross-College Advising Service (CCAS) we’ve been helping students find their way for years! Our experience tells us that it is perfectly normal to arrive at college not having decided on a specific major and we enjoy assisting students through this exciting time.

Our staff of advisors is knowledgeable about the wide variety of programs available to undergraduates at UW-Madison. Whether students are interested in education, engineering, or a liberal arts major like English or History, our advisors can direct them toward opportunities to explore and confirm existing interests, as well as discover new ones.
