In order to determine the requirements of your major or minor, you will need to meet with your Major and/or Minor Advisors.
REMINDER: major & minor advisors are not assigned. Please click here for Major & Minor Advisors contact information.
If you have questions related to your CU Denver Core requirements or CLAS Graduation requirements, please contact your assigned CLAS Academic Advisor.
If you currently have a major declared within the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences and would like to declare a new or additional major in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, you do not necessarily need to meet with your CLAS Advisor. You may complete the Major/Minor Change Form and submit the completed form to the front desk of the CLAS Advising Office. However, you are encouraged to meet with the major advisor within the major department to discuss the requirements of your new major.
If you are currently undeclared and seeking to declare a CLAS major, you will need to meet with a CLAS Advisor in a scheduled 30-minute appointment. They will be able to answer any questions, assist with the necessary paperwork, and process the change within the system. Please contact the CLAS Advising Office to schedule an appointment. You are encouraged to meet with the major advisor within the major department prior to making this change to determine the major requirements and discuss possible concentrations or sub-plans.
If you are currently declared in a major within a different College at CU Denver but wishing to switch into or add a CLAS major, please download the Intra-university Transfer (IUT) form. Once you are ready to submit your major change, you'll need to meet with a CLAS Advisor to submit the IUT form. Please contact the CLAS Advising Office. Please note that for IUT forms submitted after the current term census date, the CLAS major will not become active in the system until the following term.
