1.     Students must have satisfactorily completed PSYC 102

2.     Students must have taken:

  • PSYC 104/105
  • PSYC 200/201 or PSYC 210/211 (previously known as PSYC 300 and PSYC 310)
  • and one of the following core courses (PSYC 370/371 or PSYC 375 or PSYC 380/381)

3.     Students must have a 3.0 or greater GPA for the group of courses listed under #2.

4.     Students must sign a Declaration Intent Form by attending a Psychology Admission Orientation during their application term.
