HDP 191 Pre-Enrollment Questionnaire

Application Process to Reserve a Seat in the Course

(Spring Quarter of the year PRIOR TO enrollment in HDP 191)

  • The application period for HDP 191 enrollment requests begins in May, to plan course enrollment for HDP 191 the following academic year.
  • This application, announced via UCSD email every May, reserves students' seats in HDP 191 for the fall, winter, and spring quarters of the following academic year.
  • Students will be notified of their quarter of placement by the end of May.
  • Graduating seniors have first priority for enrollment, as seats are limited each quarter. Students of senior standing who have completed a significant amount of upper division HDP coursework will be given second priority, followed by juniors. All other students will be considered only in the rare occasion when space permits.
