For students who entered LMU as first year students with other majors (including “undeclared”), completion of PSYC 1000 with a minimum grade of C (2.0) or higher is required PRIOR to declaring Psychology as a major or minor.  

LMU students who wish to switch into the major (from undeclared status or other majors at LMU) are strongly encouraged to do so by the end of the first semester of sophomore year. Declaring a major after this time may delay the completion of their degree requirements beyond the typical four-year period.

External transfer students to LMU who have not received transfer credit approval for PSYC 2001 (Statistical Methods for Psychology) or PSYC 2002 (Research Methods) may be delayed in the completion of their degree requirements beyond the typical two-year period.

Students may not register for any Psychology course for a third time without the written permission of the Psychology Department Chairperson and the Dean of the Bellarmine College of Liberal Arts.
