This form is open for two weeks beginning the third full week of each quarter.
Fall 2017: The form will be open 10/16/17 - 10/30/17
Students intending to take PSY 301 and declare a Major in Psychology must first declare a Psychology Pre-Major. The Psychology Pre-Major and Major are highly impacted. The number of students wishing to take the Pre-Major and Major exceed the number of spaces available. As a result, there is a GPA and completed credit requirement for both Pre-Major and Major applications.
Prerequisites for a Psychology Pre-Major:
- Completion of at least 15 Psychology credits by the end of the current quarter (this includes Western credits, transfer credits, and AP classes). At least 5 of those credits must be from Western.
- Completion of PSY 101, or transfer credit for that class, as indicated on the Transfer Equivalency Report.
- Completed (including classes currently enrolled in) at least 90 credits;
- Achieved a Western GPA (based on at least 12 credits) of 2.60 or higher. In the absence of a Western GPA, a GPA of 2.6 or higher from an equivalent four-year institution (based on at least 12 credits) or a cumulative GPA from a completed Associates degree may substitute for the Western GPA.
