Declare Psychology as your Major

Application to the Psychology Major

Due to the major's impacted status, students can only apply to the psychology major during the first three weeks of each semester. The application period is currently CLOSED.

No applications will be reviewed until the application window has closed. Students will be notified of their acceptance via email a few weeks after that date. Students who are accepted to the major will have to submit an official Change of Major form before the first week of registration for Spring 2023 begins (Nov 14-18).

In general, the application asks students to verify that they meet the major's three impaction criteria:

  • A minimum cumulative GPA of 2.8 or higher
  • Completion of at least 45 units (in-progress do not count)
  • Completion of PSY 250 or equivalent course with a "C" or better

All of the criteria must be met at the time of application.


Applications to the major should be submitted electronically using the form below only during the active application period (see dates above). Please enter your information carefully and accurately, including your Seawolf ID number and GPA.
