All transfer students who plan on majoring or minoring in Psychology have to complete two steps:
- Students transferring into the Psychology major should plan to meet with the Associate Director of Undergraduate Studies to acquaint themselves with the requirements of the major, possible study-abroad opportunities, course sequences, and any potnential academic issues that might come up. Transfer students will also have the opportunity to discuss their post-graduation plans.
- Where relevant, students should meet with the Associate Director of Undergraduate Studies to discuss the possibility of transferring courses they completed at a different college or university into the Psychology major or minor. There are two steps to complete in order to have transfer courses officially listed in the Psychology major or minor:
- The course(s) must first be accepted by New York University and must appear on the transfer student's NYU Transfer Credit Report in Albert.
- Additionally, the course(s) must be reviewed and approved by the Department of Psychology in order for it to count either as a transfer credit or as an acceptable substitute for an existing departmental course. As part of the review-process, transfer students are required to submit syllabi for the Psychology courses they took at a previous college or university to the Associate Director of Undergraduate Studies (Prof. Andy Hilford, firstname.lastname@example.org). Please contact the Academic Affairs Office at 212-998-7920 for details, or if you have any further questions about this process.
Please note that a student can only transfer up to five (5) courses into the Psychology major, or two (2) courses into the Psychology minor. For any course to count towards the major or minor, the student must have received a grade of C or higher.
