Changing Degree Programs At UC
In order to change from one degree program to another within the university, a student must submit a complete application to the new program. If the degrees are housed in the same department, and the change is made over consecutive term enrollments, the application fee is waived. If the new degree program is in a different administrative program, the student is responsible for paying the application fee.
Students are always responsible for fulfilling the requirements of the given degree program in which they are matriculated. Please see the Transfer Credit for Graduate Courses Taken at UC section for information on the amount of graduate credits that can be transferred if a student is changing from one graduate program to another within the university, or if a student is changing from visiting graduate status at the university.
