Applying for Graduation

Psychology Major: Applying for Graduation and Major Evaluation

The application process involves meeting with a psychology faculty advisor to conduct a psychology major evaluation and submitting a Degree Application to the Registrar's office. Students should email their psychology advisor to schedule a major evaluation, where the faculty will review their major coursework and complete an electronic DegreeWorks evaluation. Students should schedule this meeting and apply for graduation at least two quarters prior to the quarter they expect to graduate. Students needing to meet with a psychology advisor during the summer should try to do so during the six-week summer session, as more psychology advisors are available at that time. If a faculty advisor is not available during summer quarter the student should schedule an appointment with the current department chair. 

Students who are not sure which quarter they will graduate should meet with their psychology faculty advisor. The advisor will help determine which psychology courses still need to be completed and what quarter the student will be eligible to graduate. Students should also review the University Academic Policies in the Western Washington University General Catalog to determine if they have satisfied all the requirements.

Students should submit their Degree Application Form digitally to the Registrar's Office (Old Main 230).
