Additional program changes include:

  • ECON 1V: Principles of Economics will be accepted as an appropriate course for the Urban Studies major prerequisite.

    • This prerequisite course may be taken S/NC, as the units for this course do not count toward the 70 units required for the major. 

    • Students must take either ECON 1V or ECON 1, but do not need to take both. 

  • Any Winter Quarter 2019-20 class in which a final grade of ‘CR’ was received will count towards undergraduate degree requirements that otherwise require a letter grade.

  • Any Spring Quarter 2019-20 class in which a final grade of 'S' is received will be accepted and count towards undergraduate degree requirements that otherwise require a letter grade.
