How Does Major Decision Work?

  • As a college student, you apply using the simple form below. We confirm your enrollment with your college and you receive an answer in minutes.

  • Then you set up your Profile, including information for high school students to search on, and banking information that allows us to pay you through direct deposit.

  • High school students and families search the Major Decision database of college students (Student Advisors) at colleges they're considering.

  • When they find a match, they schedule an online conversation in text or video format. No personal information - email addressed or phone numbers are ever exchanged, for safety and security.

  • At the agreed-upon time, you join the secure online session, conducted entirely within the Major Decision platform.

  • The high school student can rate the quality of the conversation (1-5 stars) and you're paid directly to your bank account a few days after the appointment.

  • A Major Decision Advisor can expect to book 10-25 appointments each year. Make money, build your resume and broaden your network all in your free time! We will be adding additional income opportunities in the future as well. Join, stay active and have some great conversations.
