Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Admissions

1. Why was I admitted into an undeclared major?

You've been admitted as an Undeclared major with the provision that you will complete a prescribed set of courses in one academic year. It's important that you work closely with your academic advisor to determine the courses you need to take. After you've successfully completed the required courses you will be able to pursue your chosen major.

2. Where can I get an idea of the courses I still need to complete?

We recommend speaking with your academic advisor during orientation. You can also view the courses required for admission to your major at transfer.ucmerced.edu/selection. If you have questions you can give us a call 209-228-7643.

3. What if I'm not able to complete the required courses at the end of my first year?
