Petitioning Study Abroad Courses

Courses completed via the UC Education Abroad Program that are not already pre-approved to satisfy history major or minor requirements may be petitioned. Save course syllabi, reading lists, your class notes, papers, test, etc. These materials will help you successfully petition your study abroad courses.

Important Reminders

Up to three courses completed abroad may apply to your history major or minor requirements. Each course must transfer to UCSC for a minimum of 4 quarter units and must also be passed with a C (or equivalent) or better.

When to Submit Your Petition

Study Abroad courses must appear on your UCSC academic record before you submit your petition. It can take up to four months after the official end date of your UCEAP program for your study abroad courses and grades to appear on your UCSC academic record.
