Degree Audit Update for General Public Health Majors 

General Public Health majors' degree audits were automatically updated by the Degree Audit Programmers at our request within the last 2 weeks.  This means that the major requirements listed on your degree audit should now match the requirements listed on our website.  However, as there was a major update of the whole Degree Audit system over the last year, many students' audits currently contain an error directing them to talk with their major department about an audit update.

If your audit lists an error within your major's requirements, please note that you will need to ask your college to update your degree audit, as we are unable to do so. You should be able to request this update via the Virtual Advising Center.

This update only applies to students who started on campus after Fall 2016.

 

Academic Advising: No Advising During Finals Week

Check our website for available drop-in and appointment advising hours. Please be advised that we will not be offering appointments during Finals week and will have only walk-ins available on Monday and Tuesday of Spring Break.

All major courses (LD and UD) will be accepted for P/NP except for the following courses: FMPH 40, FMPH 193, FMPH 194, FMPH 196A, FMPH 196B, FMPH 196C.  These courses must be taken for a Letter grade.

 

In addition, students may take a maximum of FOUR (4) total classes for P/NP for their major, excluding FMPH 40, FMPH 193, FMPH 194, FMPH 196ABC and courses that are only offered P/NP (FMPH 198, FMPH 199, AIP 197) between SP20 and SP21.

In addition, please check for overlapping final exam times.

New Major Update

Students wishing to switch into a Public Health major can again do so using the Major/Minor Tool on TritonLink!  The glitch has been resolved and our majors are available for switching.  Keep in mind that we currently have up to a week delay with approvals as each one must be reviewed by an advisor.  We anticipate a high volume of requests to switch majors, so please be patient.

 

Students who do not wish to switch into one of our majors with a concentration will have their major automatically updated to the Fall 2020 requirements some time within the next month. You will not need to take any action.

 

Students who started on campus before Fall 2019 may need to have their degree audits updated manually by their college (due to a UAchieve update), after switching or updating their major.  If your degree audit does not list major requirements, please follow up with your college.

 

 

As a reminder, double majors who wish to switch into one of our concentrations will need to do so using a Double Major Petition revision (please fill out the double major petition as though you were newly declaring your major, but mark "Revision" at the top) and proceeding with department approvals from both majors.

The forums give students a space to build social connection during this time of physical distancing.https://caps.ucsd.edu/_files/flyers/flyer_forums_winter21.pdf

Reminder: Grading Option Update for Fall 2020

You will be receiving detailed information this week from the university about changing your Fall 2020 grading option to P/NP. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Education Policy Committee of the UC San Diego Academic Senate will be allowing all students to change their Fall 2020 grades from Letter Graded to P/NP during the first four weeks of Winter quarter.  The Bachelor of Science in Public Health has determined that students may take any major courses except FMPH 40 and 194A for P/NP.  However, we strongly encourage students to consider all potential ramifications of this decision before changing their grading option. For more information, please see our website: https://ph.ucsd.edu/undergrad/undergrad/new-major-req/#COVID-19.

 

New Major Update

Unfortunately there is still a glitch affecting our new Public Health majors. The Major/Minor tool is not showing ANY Public Health majors at this time.  We are aware of the situation and are working with the Registrar's Office to get it fixed, but it is currently out of our control.  We received an update today that we should expect the tool to begin working again by next Monday, but it is out of our control.  We will do our best to update students when the situation has been resolved.

 

Students who do not wish to switch into one of our majors with a concentration will have their major automatically updated to the Fall 2020 requirements some time within the next month. You will not need to take any action.

 

Students who started on campus before Fall 2019 may need to have their degree audits updated manually by their college (due to a UAchieve update), after switching or updating their major.  If your degree audit does not list major requirements, please follow up with your college.

 

 

As a reminder, double majors who wish to switch into one of our concentrations will need to do so using a Double Major Petition revision (please fill out the double major petition as though you were newly declaring your major, but mark "Revision" at the top) and proceeding with department approvals from both majors.
