If a course is not on this list, including a course from UCSD, then it will need to be petitioned for Humanities 3-4-5 credit. Please know that petitions are rarely approved.
If you choose to move forward with the petition process, submit an Undergraduate Student Petition to the Humanities Program for consideration. You must attach a syllabus or course description to the petiton. You can submit the form in one of the following ways:
In person: Humanities Program, Galbraith Hall 180; Place petition in "Student Drop Off" bin
Petitions may take 2-4 weeks for review.
Once you have finished the course, please send an official transcript to the UCSD Admissions Office:
UCSD Admissions, 0021-A
9500 Gilman Drive
La Jolla, CA 92093-0021
It usually takes 10-12 weeks for UCSD Admissions to post transfer courses to UCSD records. Once your transfer courses have been received by UCSD Admissions and posted to your UCSD records, your Academic History will display your transferred courses. Please continue to check your Academic History for that information.
