Making important decisions that will affect your future can be stressful, if not downright overwhelming. Luckily, however, help is at hand. CPS offers Major Decision to help KSU students find satisfying college majors and careers about which they can be passionate. The Strong Interest Inventory® assessment is the perfect career tool to help you decide on the right major and what steps to take after graduation. Knowing and making informed decisions based on your interests can help you achieve greater success in your college career and find a career path that is enjoyable and fulfilling.
Our Major Decision workshop is only available to KSU students who are currently registered and attending classes in the current semester. Students will take the Strong Interest Inventory prior to attending a workshop. At the workshop, our counselors will review the results of the assessment with the students.
There is a $25.00 fee and registration is required. Individual appointments are available to those students who are unable to attend a workshop due to class/work schedules.
Once you register, you will receive a confirmation email with a website link. You will take the Strong Interest Inventory assessment from home. Results will come to the CPS office and a counselor will review them with you at the workshop. The workshop is a small group format and typically last about 45-60 minutes.

More about the Strong Interest Inventory
The Strong Interest Inventory® instrument is a powerful tool that can help you make satisfying decisions about your career and education. Whether you are just starting out in your career, thinking about a change, or considering education options for career preparation, you can benefit from the wealth of information reflected in your Strong results.
Understanding your Strong Profile can help you identify a career focus and begin your career planning and exploration process. Keep in mind that the Strong measures interests, not skills or abilities, and that the results can help guide you toward rewarding careers, work activities, education programs, and leisure activities—all based on your interests. As you and our counselor review your Profile, remember that managing your career is not a one-time decision but a series of decisions made over your lifetime.
