Use the Undergraduate Studies Catwalk to guide you through the major selection process.

Declaring a Major

>> Read a quick overview on How to Declare a Major [PDF]

When: In general, majors may be declared or changed before and after Priority Registration but not during this period. See the Academic Calendar for current dates.

Who: Any student can change majors during the designated approved periods but certain restrictions apply:

>> Any student with 60 or more earned credit hours may not declare Undergraduate Studies as their major.

>> Some majors require an application or audition. Refer to the 'overview' document above.

Where: For Undergraduate Studies students, come to the front desk in 109 Miller Hall. All other students should go to the office of their current college to begin the major change process.

What: Bring your UK student ID with you. We must see this to release your records. Also, if you have been permitted into a selective major, bring your admission notice. Proof of acceptance must be presented in order to receive your records.

How: Follow the directions outlined in the document above depending on whether you are declaring a selective or a non-selective major:

For Non-Selective Admission Colleges

Come to the front desk in 109 Miller Hall and tell the receptionist that you would like to declare a major. You will be asked to show your UK ID, fill out an Exit Survey and then be given the paperwork to deliver to your new college. Once you have delivered the paperwork to the college you will be officially declared and assigned an advisor in that college.
