How To Declare

Declaring CogSci

Students who have met the declaration requirements can choose to submit their application form in person in an advising appointment or online via the online form below. 

Upcoming CogSci major declaration deadlines:

  • May 28 - June 28, 2019: Deadline to submit for students who want to declare before Fall 2019. CogSci staff will evaluate all applications submitted during this window AFTER the window closes. Our goal is to have all students declared before Phase 2 begins. 

In order to streamline our declaration and enrollment processes, the Cognitive Science program will implement a deadline system for major declaration.

Every Fall & Spring semester, beginning in Spring 2019, we will accept major declaration form submissions from the first day of instruction until the add-drop deadline. During Summer term, we will we will accept major declaration form submissions from the first day of instruction until the end of the first week of Session C.

Students may submit their application in the term during which they have completed or are enrolled in their final prerequisite course(s).  Major declaration forms can be submitted during an in-person advising appointment (schedule via CalCentral) or via our online google form below.

We do not accept late submissions. Students who miss the deadline must wait until the next term to submit their declaration forms. 

Students who have completed all prerequisites at the time of submission can expect their declaration to be finalized within three weeks of the deadline. Students who will complete their prerequisites at the end of the submission term can expect their declaration to be finalized within three weeks of the end of that term.
