Educational Services is important since it affects all students practical life. The manual academic advising suffers from many drawbacks as knowledge of advisors, awareness of course contents and how to capture the student preference. Academic advising is a process for helping to define the proposed subjects to be registered. Academic advising also includes student guidance and transfer cases. Case based Reasoning (CBR) is one of the automated techniques that can be used for converting the manual process of academic advising into automated one. This paper proposes an automated technique that proposed the student with the most suitable major in his case. The user feed the system with a group of cases in each available department. The mechanism converts the individual course into a group of concepts and enables matching of similarities between concepts of different courses. The proposed technique will be beneficial for transfer cases between major. Based on the system recommendation, the student can take decision on the best major based on the achieving level.
