Declaring the Psychology Major

Students who indicate psychology on their UC admissions applications will be considered proposed psychology until they declare. To declare the General or Intensive Psychology major you must complete Psych 1 with a B- or better, Psych 2 with a B- or better and the math requirement with a C or better. Once these courses are completed, you can declare the major. 

Petition for Major Declaration (Spring 2020)

Students eligible to declare must submit a Major Declaration Request to initiate their Petition for Major Declaration.  Requests submitted by our department’s Spring 2020 Declaration Deadline, Thursday, April 23, 2020 will be processed before Fall 2020 enrollment begins. Requests submitted after that date may be delayed in processing and approval. Notifications of Petition of Major Declaration approval or denial will be sent to students' UCSC email.
