Policies and Procedures

Note:  If you are planning on beginning Applied Psychology coursework in the CCSP department, you are required to petition to declare the minor beforehand. W15 Pass I will be restricted to seniors only who have already declared the minor. Remaining Pass times will open to juniors and seniors who have already declared the minor.

Minor Policies:

  • Our Minors require a minimum of 18 upper division quarter units
  • Students must receive a grade of C, P or better in courses used towards our minors
  • Students can take up to 5 units Pass/No Pass
  • Five units can be taken for Independent Study (199 or 199RA) if applicable
  • Only 5 units may overlap between a student’s major and minor

Substitution Policy: Community College and other lower division courses may NOT be used as a substitution for any minor course. Six upper division quarter units can be transferred from another college or university besides UCSB if the units are approved by the course instructor and faculty advisor in the Gevirtz Graduate School of Education. Please be aware that UCSB Extension and UCEAP are considered outside institutions, and you may apply no more than six units from either program toward your minor.

It is the student’s responsibility to contact the GGSE Student Affairs Office within the first 2 weeks in the quarter in which the degree is anticipated to certify fulfillment of degree requirements for the Office of the Registrar.

Students are encouraged to enroll in classes early as space is limited. There is a possibility that you will not be able to complete the courses due to popularity and space availability. If you are having difficulty in completing your elective units, you may contact the Student Affairs Office for a list of interdepartmental pre-approved elective course substitutions. 

Student Technology Fee

Initially, the Student Technology Fee (STF) will provide technological enhancements to school members. The STF will be assessed $2.50 per unit for the 15 units of ED or CNCSP courses taken each quarter and will be charged automatically to students’ BA/RC accounts. The fee is officially assessed during the 3rd week of each quarter; thus, students who drop a course after the third week census will still incur the per-unit charge. Please refer to the ITGWiki FAQ page for more details.
