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 are advised to review the degree evaluation in WebPortal and review the Major Prep section for details on the impaction requirements for their major. In addition, students should refer to the General Catalog of the year in which they declared a major for official requirements.

Students may visit the Academic Advising Center (SSW-1551) to review catalogs from previous years.
