Undergraduate Advising

In light of the announcement that in-person classes have been suspended in order to limit coronavirus (COVID-19) risk on campus,  CRES advising will be conducted via zoom video chatIf you’d rather not do a video chat, we can email or gchat, just let me know.

You may declare the CRES major upon enrolling in CRES 10. The pre-requisite for CRES 10 is your C1 writing course. Students interested in majoring in Critical Race & Ethnic Studies are required to meet with the undergraduate advisor to discuss the major and complete an academic planning form with your proposed plan of study.


Declaring Another Major/Minor

Students wishing to declare a second major or minor program with CRES are required to file a quarter-by-quarter academic plan showing that you are able to complete the program within the maximum number of quarters of enrollment available to you at UCSC.

By the end of your junior year, you should complete the CRES Major Requirement Checklist and make an appointment to meet with the CRES Peer Advisor (single CRES majors only) or the Undergraduate Advisor to make sure you are on track to graduate by the expected graduation term (EGT) on your student portal. 

Links to other forms can be found to the left.


Your CRES advisor is Shauntay Larkins.
