Physics Now Uncapped!

The Physics Department is pleased to announce that all of our majors and specializations are now uncapped!

Please Note: The FALL UPDATE of the UCSD General Catalog will be published on October 25 and will reflect this change. 

Ahead of declaring a major in physics, please consider the following:

  1. Am I on track in Physics? For this, check the standard academic plan for your admit type. Since most required major courses are offered only once per year, time-to-degree could be delayed by up to one year for students who are not on track with the standard academic plan for their admit type.
  2. Have I spoken with the Physics Advising Team since Physics became uncapped?

Students who declare a major in physics should immediately watch the physics orientation and begin reviewing the Physics Department Handbook.
