Winter 2021 Enrollment:

We will send an email to incoming transfer students admitted as Proposed Cognitive Science or Psychology majors requesting you send all your unofficial transcripts to psyadv@ucsc.edu. Please read and reply to that email immediately when you receive it. If we receive your unofficial transcripts, we will provide you with permission codes to take two Psychology Department courses in the Winter. 

Sample Major Academic Plans:

Make a copy of a sample academic plan template below to your UCSC Google Drive to make edits. These plans are for students' personal use in academic planning. You will receive an official academic plan reviewed and signed by a Psychology Undergraduate Advisor when you declare the Cognitive Science or Psychology major. Review the presentation above for more information about the major declaration requirements and process.
