Impacted Majors

All San Diego State University majors and pre-majors are designated as impacted, meaning they have more students wanting to declare that major than can be accommodated. Students who are admitted to SDSU are placed in the pre-major of that program (if all requirements are met at the time of admission).

All premajors must meet department-specific criteria to move from the premajor to the major, such as a specified minimum grade point average, completion of prerequisite courses, tests, and completion of a certain number of units. Students should refer to the General Catalog of the year in which they declared a major for official requirements. For example, if you declared a major in fall 2011, you would choose the 2011-12 link listed under your major for your impacted major requirements.
