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 

Students eligible to declare must submit a Major Declaration Request to initiate their Petition for Major Declaration. Access to this form is restricted to UCSC email accounts- you must be signed into your UCSC account on the browser you use to access the survey. Notifications of Petition of Major Declaration approval or denial will be sent to students' UCSC email.
