First Quarter Enrollment for New Transfer Students

We recommend that you start with no more than four courses during your first quarter at UC San Diego, in addition to the Transfer First Year Experience. You should work on completing any outstanding Lower Division requirements and Core classes first. Remember, even if you are IGETC certified, you will need to complete all your Lower Division coursework as laid out for your choice of major.

    • 2 PSYC Core Courses (#100-108)
    • 1-2 College Requirement Courses
    • Transfer First Year Experience
  • If you have completed your statistics requirement and SOME of your LD major courses:
    • 1-2 LD Major Courses (prioritize PSYC 70)

If you have declared any major within the Psychology Department upon acceptance to UC San Diego, you should expect to hear from the Psychology Department via the New Student Site/Enrollment Advising Center before your enrollment date. If you have not declared a Psychology major, or have not heard from the Psychology Department by two to three days before your enrollment date, please contact us via the New Student Site for assistance.
