Psychology Pre-Major Application

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:

  1. 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.
  2. Completion of PSY 101, or transfer credit for that class, as indicated on the Transfer Equivalency Report.
  3. Completed (including classes currently enrolled in) at least 90 credits;
  4. 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.

If you do not currently meet the above requirements, you are advised to wait until the requirements are met. You may also wish to contact the Department Chair, Larry Symons, or Academic Advising.
