Academic Plan Upon transferring to UCF, my hardest decision was choosing a major. I couldn’t decide on a career because too many areas interested me, so naturally, choosing a major became just as difficult. The first major that I ever decided on was Psychology.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
