- Note, students wanting to declare in the School of Natural Sciences, MUST also submit the "Graduation Planner", along with the Major Change form.
- Students must meet the following requirements in order to declare (refer to chart below):
C- or better in MATH 21
C- or better in MATH 5, 11 or 21
2.0 GPA or better
- Students who have been DEMAJORED from their declared majored must earn a C- or better in all lower division requirements for their intended school/major before they can declare a major. For questions about this requirement, contact your Undeclared advisor.
In order to register for more than 18 units, students must submit a written request via email to their Undeclared advisor or submit an override request. Students may request enrollment in excess units if they meet the following criteria:
- cumulative 3.0 GPA or better
- 3.3 GPA in most recent Fall/Spring semester
- Sophomore, Junior, or Senior standing
Students are advised to take no more than 12 units during Summer Session. Units above the maximum advisable amount are allowed only with permission of a students' academic advisor. Students on Academic Probation must not exceed 8 units. To request excess units during summer sessions, please email your advisor or submit an override request.
Many upper division or major courses require prerequisites. A prerequisite override may be requested if the student has either
- Met the pre-req with AP or Placement Exam scores; or
- Completed the pre-req course at a community college or other institution. Proof documentation will need to be submitted to the Registrar’s Office.
To submit a prerequisite override, email your academic advisor or submit an override request.
First-time repeats can be requested through email to your academic advisor, or via override request. Subsequent repeats of the same course must be requested through submitting a Subsequent Repeat Request Form. Students may request to repeat a maximum of 4 courses. If students have reached the maximum number of course repeats, they may continue attempting the course at another institution. If a student cannot pass a course after this many subsequent attempts, however, it is strongly recommended that these students choose another major.
- Courses passed with C- or greater cannot be repeated.
- Exceptions to this policy are rare, and you may request an exception by submitting a Petition of Academic Policy to your Undeclared Academic Advisor.
Students seeking to participate in the UC Intercampus Visitor Program should be declared in a major. Strong preference is given to declared students, because any courses taken at another UC should count toward a student's degree. Course articulation is determined by the schools (SSHA, Natural Sciences, and Engineering) not Undeclared Advising. Undeclared students are discouraged from participating in this program until they have declared a major.
