Following the campus guidelines for Coronavirus all UC Davis classes, lectures, seminars, labs and discussion sections will move to virtual instruction and remain virtual through the end of Summer Session 2021, including final exams. Given this, the department’s administrative functions have moved to remote work conditions. To contact staff members of the department via e-mail or phone, please go to our administrative staff contact page.  We anticipate a return to campus for Fall 2021.

Can prereqs be postponed?

Can I take prerequisite courses when beginning the Graduate Program instead of before applying?

No. These courses must be completed and the grades for them should be included on your transcripts when you apply for admission. UC Davis offers no "conditional admission."
