Undergraduate Program Change Petition (Use this form to petition for a change of major, minor, or College or school. Changes to or from multiple majors require College/school and department approval. College/school changes require College/school approval. Changes to an undergraduate program are normally not permitted if the student is on probation or has begun the last term.)

Data Theory Petition

A new protocol has recently been added to the petitions process for Data Theory. The Statistics Department now wants incoming Data Theory students to submit a tentative course plan when entering the major. Please fill out this Degree Plan Contract with the current term and your tentative course plan for the rest of your time at UCLA – https://caac.ucla.edu/wp-content/uploads/2021/05/DegreePlanner.pdf.

Things to note:
  • Statistics courses are offered in very specific quarters, so you can use this roadmap to know when the Stats Department suggests you should take each statistics class: http://statistics.ucla.edu/wp-content/uploads/2022/04/Course-Roadmap-v.2022002.pdf.
  • For the capstone course, Stats/Math M148 will only be offered in winter quarters.
