Transfer Students

Congratulations on your admission to UC Davis and Welcome to the History Major! To help you prepare for a great first year, we have planned a comprehensive UC Davis Orientation experience in three parts: Aggie 101, Aggie Advising, and Aggie Orientation!

 

TO GET STARTED, HERE ARE YOUR STEPS TO SUCCESS:

1) You must complete Aggie 101 through your MyAdmissions Portal

2)  After completing Aggie 101, you will then schedule an appointment with us, your Major advisors. You will need your UC Davis Login ID and Kerberos Passphrase to access the Online Appointment System. Once you have logged in,  select "Economics, History and East Asian Studies". Please enter your information and select the reason "Transfer: Aggie Advising"

3) Prepare for your appointment by doing the following: 

  • Review your Transfer Guide
  • Find 2-3 non-major courses that you would be interested in taking in Fall 2020 alongside 1-2 major courses
  • It is not recommended to take more than 2 History courses per quarter. 
  • Click on this diagram to help you identify courses of interest outside of your major
  • History courses do not have prerequisites, Remember to check prerequisites for non-major courses to make sure you’re eligible. 
  • Review the resources for new students from the College of Letters and Science. Our Advising Center will assist you with your major requirements and the College will assist you with your general education and college/university requirements. Throughout your career at UC Davis, you will work with both of these offices for academic advising.  We always encourage you to check in with the College of Letters and Science Undergraduate Education and Advising Office regarding requirements outside of the major: http://ls.ucdavis.edu/advising
