UC San Diego undergraduate students who would like to change from another major or undeclared into the DSC program may apply to the major via the Capped Major Application. Applications must be submitted on or before the deadline.
Please note that space within the Data Science major is limited and admission is not guaranteed. We recommend that all interested students looking to switch majors meet with their current Major Advisor, College Advisor, and a DSC Advisor during drop-in advising. Prospective transfer students are strongly encouraged to meet with their College Advisor and a DSC Advisor to discuss their interest and ability to become a DSC major. Advising hours and instructions can be found on the Advising page of our website.
Students majoring in Data Science may NOT double major or minor in Computer Science and Engineering.
