Following the completion of 60 credit hours of acceptable college work, students must complete the Declaration of Major
form from the UMKC's Registration & Records Office and obtain signatures from the designated dean's representative. Students who want to change an officially declared degree program must repeat the declaration process.
Baccalaureate degree-seeking students must fulfill the specific requirements for a degree program as outlined in the appropriate catalog section. Regardless of the number of hours transferred, a minimum of 12 hours in the major field of study must be earned in residence at UMKC. Check with an academic adviser for information on the number of departmental residence hours required for a specific degree program.
