UC Davis Managerial Economics

Prospective/Admitted Transfer Students

Transfer Students - Admitted as Managerial Economics Majors

Advising & Orientation

Newly admitted transfer students should attend Transfer Orientation in August.  Peer Advisors are available for drop-in appointments during the week

Recommended 3-quarter academic plan for the first year

  • Students should seek advising regularly to develop an updated academic plan and for proper sequencing of classes.
  • Prerequisites in upper division ARE courses are strictly enforced.  The department reserves the right to drop students from any ARE class if all prerequisites have not been successfully completed.
  • All upper division core and restricted electives to fulfill major requirements must be taken for a letter grade.  Passed/Not Passed (P/NP) grading will not be accepted.

Provided the preparatory course work has been completed prior to fall quarter, this typical 3-quarter plan is recommended:

Students not yet declared in the Managerial Economics major

  • Students may not change majors until after successfully completing at least one quarter at UC Davis (must be in good academic standing).
  • The first step to changing majors is to meet with a Managerial Economics Peer Advisor to develop an academic study plan (no appointment needed; see their schedule on Advising page).
  • Students in good academic standing may submit a Change of Major petition online in OASIS:
    • Logon with your UCD LoginID and Kerberos password.
    • Click the “Forms & Petitions” tab, then “Submit a New Form.”
    • Complete and submit both the Change of Major petition and Academic Plan.  Change of Major petitions not accompanied by online academic plans will not be approved.
