Overrides and Exceptions for Psyc Courses
The Online Course Override Exception Form is no longer available. If you would like to request an override for a course, please plan on attending the first class to ask the instructor. (The form for Summer and Fall registration will be available at a later date.)
If you are concerned that your schedule will impact your graduation plans, please contact your Academic Advisor and the Department of Psychology main office (email@example.com).
Regarding Psyc 210 & 212
You must be a “Fully Admitted Psychology Major” (not a “Declared Psychology Major”) to register for Psyc 210 (Psychological Statistics) or Psyc 212 (Psychological Research Design and Data Analysis I). Students who want to enroll in Psyc 210 or Psyc 212 who are not currently fully admitted Psychology Majors should apply for admission to the Psychology Major as soon as possible and submit an override request form online so we can give you priority consideration. More information about seeking admission to the psychology major.
Area Course Prerequisites
Completion of Psyc 211 or 213 is recommended before students take Psychology Content Core Courses (Psyc 330-395), because you are likely to be able to understand the content of these courses more deeply if you have a good working knowledge of research methodology . Some Content Core Courses have specific assignments that require you to have skills developed in our methods courses, so prerequisites are strictly enforced. For some Content Core Courses, if space is available, faculty will permit selected students to take their course concurrently with Psyc 211 or 213. Special permission is more likely if you are an advanced student and if you have had other prior experiences that are relevant to the course you want to take early (such as biology experience for Psyc 395).
