Application Process and Deadlines
If you have 150 or more units completed, in addition to the capped major application, you will need to submit a quarter-by-quarter plan in order to be considered for admission. The quarter-by-quarter plan will be evaluated by both the capped major department and your college to ensure satisfactory time to degree. Download and complete the quarter-by-quarter plan and submit it to no later than the deadline to apply for the open term. If your quarter-by-quarter plan is not received by the stated deadline, your application will be considered incomplete and will be automatically denied.

For more information about the application deadlines (fall, winter, and spring quarters only), and the review process, see the Entry to the Majors page.
