Capped Majors

A capped major is a major that limits enrollment.

If you choose a capped major on your admissions application, we highly recommend that you also select an alternate major.

If you are a prospective applicant and you have further questions, please contact Admissions via email at admissionsreply@ucsd.edu or by telephone at (858) 534-4831.

It may not be possible to change to a capped major as a continuing student. See additional information found in the undergraduate section on the academic department websites.

Majors with capped status – for all students:

Note: A capped major is not the same as a major requiring pre-major status.
