Advising


Declaring a Major & Being Assigned an SPLH Mentor/Advisor

Anne Morris, Academic Advisor from College Advising and Student Services is our dedicated SPLH undergraduate advisor.  She will be available to assist you with academic advising, particularly in the area of College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) requirements.

  • Declaring your SPLH major. Ms Morris can do this for you. Please make an appointment with her to declare your major.  Students can schedule an appointment with her either online through MySuccess via the myKU Portal or by calling College Advising & Student Services at (785) 864-3500 during normal business hours (8 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday).  She does not schedule appointments via email as her availability changes quickly.  Office hours in the SPLH office will be Thursdays from 1:00-4:30 PM and all day on Fridays.
  • Completing your plan of study. Ms Morris can also assist you with this. After you have created a plan of study, you should go over it with your faculty mentor/advisor (faculty member assigned to you by Becky Harris).
  • In the semester before you plan to graduate, meet with Ms Morris for a graduation check.
  • Ms Morris is also available to help you with questions about classes and enrollment to meet graduation requirements throughout your undergraduate career. 

Once you have declared your major, Becky Harris will assign you an SPLH faculty mentor. Your faculty mentor/advisor is available to help you select electives, complementary minors and majors, and co-curricular activities as well as answer questions about graduate school and careers post-graduation.  After meeting with Ms Morris, please e-mail your plan of study to your assigned SPLH faculty mentor and request an advising appointment with your SPLH mentor/advisor. You should also visit the opportunities section to learn about co-curricular activities to discuss with your mentor.
