Declaration of Minor Procedure
STEP ONE: Download Forms
Download three forms:
- A Petition for Major/Minor Declaration from the UCSC Undergraduate Advising Center. Fill out the petition to the best of your ability. Be sure to indicate your expected graduation term (EGT) on the petition. Your EGT can be found in your Student Advising Summary on your MyUCSC Student Portal.
- An East Asian studies minor planning worksheet (PDF). Fill out the form to the best of your ability.
- A UCSC Academic Planning Form. Fill out the form to the best of your ability. Your major adviser and the history undergraduate program coordinator will also advise and assist you in completing this form.
STEP TWO: Declare Your Major
Complete the declaration requirements for your major(s). Obtain your major adviser's signature on the Petition for Major/Minor Declaration and the UCSC Academic Planning Form.
*Even if you have already declared a major(s) in a previous quarter, you are still required to complete step two. Checking in with your major adviser beforehand verifies that the addition of the East Asian studies minor will not negatively impact your degree progress.
STEP THREE: Complete Declaration of Minor
See the history undergraduate program coordinator during drop-in advising hours to complete your East Asian Studies minor declaration. In addition to your East Asian studies minor planning worksheet, you must bring a Petition for Major/Minor Declaration and UCSC Academic Planning Form, recently signed by your major adviser(s), in order to complete your declaration.
