Overview

The Department of Psychology offers two undergraduate degrees. Students may elect a program leading to either the Bachelor of Arts or Bachelor of Science degree in experimental psychology.


Entrance Requirements

Lower Division. In order to be admitted into the Department of Psychology, freshmen and transfer students must meet all University and college admission requirements. Transfer students must meet all such requirements and have a GPA of 2.25 or better. Acceptance into the department with a lower-division classification does not guarantee progression into the upper-division psychology major.

Upper Division. Progression into the upper division is based on the successful completion of all lower-division criteria.


Progression Requirements

Lower Division. All students enter the lower division when the psychology major is declared.

Requirements

  1. Complete PSYC 101 and 226 with a grade of C or better.

  2. Attain a 2.25 cumulative GPA.

  3. The preceding lower-division requirements must be met by the completion of the first 30 credit hours as a declared psychology major. If at that time the student has not met the requirements, the student must select another major.

Regulations

  1. Ineligible to enroll in 500-level and higher courses.

  2. May repeat psychology major courses only once to earn the required grade of C or better.

Upper Division. Students enter the upper division in one of two ways:

  1. Successfully complete lower-division requirements within the first 30 credit hours as a declared psychology major.
  2. May be placed in with a cumulative GPA of 2.25 or higher and have earned grades of C or better in both PSYC 101 and 226 or equivalents.

Regulations

  1. Maintain a cumulative GPA of 2.00 or be subject to academic probation. If a 2.00 cumulative GPA has not been attained by the completion of the probationary term, the student must select another major.
  2. May repeat psychology major courses only once to earn the required grade of C or better.
  3. Students may attempt PSYC 227 and 228 two times each. If after the second attempt a student has not earned a grade of C or higher, the student will be removed from the major.
  4. May enroll in 500-level and higher courses if the prerequisites have been completed.
