Declare a Major

Major Declaration for Columbia College sophomores (Class of 2026) and other Columbia College students who need to declare will be open from March 5-March 8, 2024. 

College sophomores will receive an email on March 5, alerting them that the online system is live, and inviting them to declare their major, concentration, and/or special concentration by taking the following steps: 

  1. Visit
  2. Enter your UNI and password.
  3. Select majors/concentrations from drop down menus.
  4. Select additional major, concentration, or special concentration from drop down menus (optional).
  5. Click "Submit."
  6. Check your email for a confirmation message and information about advising in your new department!

Please note:  All programs (except for Comparative Literature and Society, Medical Humanities, and the Special Concentration in Business Management, all of which require students to apply and be accepted) can be officially declared using the online declaration system March 5-March 8. Please note that those who have applied to the Special Concentration in Business Management should still declare a major or concentration via the link below.  Students who have applied for Comparative Literature and Society or Medical Humanities may use the tool to add an optional second program if they wish. 

If you want to change your major/concentration after the major declaration period, you can work with your advising dean to discuss your options and complete a change-of-major form.
