Date and Time: November 13, 2015 10:00–11:30 AM
Location: Miami, FL
Venue: Hyatt Regency | Riverfront South/Central

The study presented in this poster session uses data from five cohorts of first-time-in-college students who entered a single state’s community college system to explore major declaration patterns among a group of students who are mandated to make major decisions at the time of first enrollment. Further, the research aims to uncover the relationship between characteristics of these patterns, specifically related to major switching, and educational outcomes.
