Major/Minor Declaration

Please note that you may submit the forms to declare your major at any time during the year.

To Declare a Major or Minor in LALS (for combined majors see below)

1. Pass one LALS course with P grade or letter grade of C or better.

2. Complete the student portion of the Petition for Major/Minor Declaration, including the signature and the check boxes for the major(s)/minor(s) you intend to declare. You can download this form to fill out and then save before attaching it to the Google form (link below).

3. If you have already declared another major and you are adding an LALS major or minor, we may need your other advisor(s) to update your Academic Planning Form before we add the LALS major. Also, we suggest you become familiar with the campus policy on double counting courses at UCSC.

4. Submit the LALS Major/Minor Declaration Form online and attach your petition to the form.
