Update Your Major


Apply to a Professional School:

Professional Schools have specific combinations of admission and GPA requirements, as well as specific application deadlines. You will need to check the admissions requirements and application deadlines and process for you major of interest.

Adjust Your Interest Code

Locate your academic interest or interest code:

To view what your current major is listed as:

  1. Log in to your myKU Portal.

  2. From the “Academics” drop-down menu, choose “My Progress.”

  3. Once you are in your advising information, click on the “Academics” tab to access your interest code.

Change or update your interest code:

If you are admitted into a Professional School (Business, Journalism, etc.) but no longer wish to be a part of that school, then you will need to complete a Change of School Form. You would then be a part of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences until you apply to and are accepted into a different program.

To change your major interest, contact your academic advisor. This will prompt them to request an update on your major. It is very important that you update your interest code and major if it’s listed incorrectly or you’ve made a change.
