Enrollment: Things to Know

Always Check Enrollment Restrictions for Classes: 
Students in the Global Health minor will need to follow enrollment policies of departments that offer the courses. Please note that most departments restrict enrollment during the first enrollment pass. GH minors may be able to enroll in the courses during the second enrollment pass.  

Note about 100 courses: 
Courses numbered 100 such as, Biostatistics 100, Community Health 100, Environmental Health Sciences 100, Public Health 100 and Health Policy 100 may be restricted to the Public Health students during the academic year. However, they will be open to all students if offered in the summer. 

Note about Nursing C155 "Globalization, Social Justice, and Human Rights"
This is a 3 unit course. Students who wish to apply this course to the Global Health minor will need to take either an additional course or 5-unit course in order to satisfy the College requirement of minimum 20 upper division minor units.

5-unit upper division courses that can be applied to the Global Health Minor (enrollment is not guaranteed):

  • Disability Studies 101W
  • Gerontology M108 (Social Welfare M108)
  • Honors Collegium 105

Students can submit a Petition to the Chair of Global Health if they want to apply a course not included on the minor worksheet. This may also include courses taken or to be taken abroad. Students must include the course syllabus with their petition.

Students are allowed to submit up to 2 petitions (including petitions for lower or upper division coursework). Courses listed on the Additional Course List do not count as a petition since they are already approved. Students taking courses abroad may be allowed to submit more than 2 courses. For questions, please contact our Advising Office.

** Please be aware that the petition may be denied and you will need to plan alternative coursework. **

Petition submissions will be checked at the end of each week. Please allow 2-3 weeks for the committee's decision.
