For EAP/Non-UCSB Courses
A student wishing to fulfill a Communication pre-major or major course requirement with a course from another institution must first ensure that the course has received departmental approval. If you are unsure about the status of a course approval, please contact the Communication Undergraduate Advising Office.
For UCSB Courses
Please note that the only one UCSB course outside of the Comm department can be petitioned for UD Communication credit. These courses are listed on our major requirements sheet.
Once your course(s) have been pre-approved, please submit the following online petition for each course in order to apply them to your Communication major requirements. Petitions can only be submitted for courses that have already been completed.
SUBMISSION OF AN ONLINE PETITION DOES NOT GUARANTEE APPROVAL FOR COURSES THAT HAVE NOT ALREADY BEEN GRANTED DEPARTMENTAL APPROVAL
(YOU MUST BE LOGGED INTO YOUR UCSB GOOGLE ACCOUNT TO SUBMIT)
Please allow up to one month for processing time. Students who have declared degree candidacy will have expedited processing. Do not submit duplicate petitions for the same course. Doing so will result in a delay in processing time.
If you took a class P/NP toward the pre-major requirements prior to deciding to pursue the Comm major, please submit a separate Grading Option petition found here: https://forms.gle/LYwU1Rt7xNHRsWJy9
