Background: Educational data mining is an emerging trend, especially in today Big Data Era. Numerous method and technique already been implemented in order  to improve its process to gain better understanding of the educational process and to extract knowledge from various related data, but the implementation of these methods into Decision support system (DSS) application still limited, especially regarding help to choose university sub majors .Objective: To design an academic decision support system (DSS) by adopting Theory of Reasoned Action (TRA) concept and using Data Mining as a factor analytic apporach to extract rules for its knowledge model.Methods: We implemented factor analysis method and decision tree method  of C.45 to produce rules of the impact course of the sub- majors and the job interest as the basic rules of the DSS.Results: The proposed academic decision support system able to give sub majors recommendations in accordance with student interest and competence, with 79.03% of precision and 61.11% of recall. Moreover, the system also has a dashboard feature that shows the information about the statistic of students in each sub majors.Conclusion: C.45 algorithm and factor analysis are suitable to build a knowledge model for Academic Decision Support System for Choosing Information System Sub Majors Bachelor Programs. This system could also help the academic adviser on monitoring and make decision accordance with that academic information
