Declaring the Global Health Minor 


Checklist to declare the Global Health Minor:

1. Have completed all preparatory courses for the minor with a minimum prep GPA of 2.00 (grades for all preps should be posted on the Degree Audit Report). 
2. Have an established UCLA GPA and be in good academic standing (minimum 2.0 cumulative GPA).
3. For students who have 150+ units, the Global Health department will request approval from their main advising unit before declaring them into the minor. If approval is granted, the department will notify students. 
Note: at least 20 units of the Global Health minor, both lower and upper division, have to be unique to the minor and cannot overlap with the major or another minor.

Students who meet those criteria can declare the Global Health minor by submitting the online petition below. 

Please allow up to three weeks for your records to be reviewed and updated.
