Because of the large numbers of students interested in Design at UC Davis, it can be difficult for students to enroll in the classes required for the major. In order to provide the exceptional training that students require and expect, the department must enforce enrollment caps in courses and prerequisites. It is strongly advised that incoming students meet with the Design Advising Associates about their class sequences and take Design courses in order beginning with Design 1, the first gateway into the major.
