Update Your Major


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:

To change your major interest you can go to main office of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences in Strong Hall 109 (785-864-3500) and fill out a major change form or email collegeadvising@ku.edu from your KU email account. It is very important that you update your interest code and major if it's listed incorrectly or you've made a change. 

Notice: Keep in mind, updating your interest code is not the same as declaring your major or applying to a professional school. These are separate processes.

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 and turn it into Strong Hall 109. You would then be a part of the College of Liberal Arts & Sciences until you apply to and are accepted into a different program.

Declare

Declare a College of Liberal Arts & Science (CLAS) major or apply to a Professional School:

Some CLAS majors have admission requirements you must complete or be in the process of completing before you can declare a certain major. 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.
