Checking Your University of California (UC) Major

October 20, 2011 Category: University of California News

With a handful of reputable campuses to choose from, it shouldn’t be hard for students to figure out what they want to major in and which UC school offers the degree program that’s the perfect fit.

Even though all of the UCs are accepting new students, certain major programs may be restricted/closed to certain applicants. It is important for new students to do research to first find out if the UC school they’re interested in applying for has their particular major open for the upcoming term.

Below is a basic breakdown of which UC campuses have restricted/closed majors for the Fall 2012 term. It is up to each student to review the restricted majors and find out whether or not they meet the requirements to continue the application process for that particular school and/or major.
