Requirements

To declare Psychology or BCN, a final letter grade must be posted in the following two prerequisite courses with at least a 2.0 GPA in the major:

  • Intro Psych Course (with a grade of C or better)
    • A score of 4 or 5 on the AP Psychology exam will earn credit for Psych 111 and fulfill this requirement
  • Stats 250: Introduction to Statistics and Data Analysis or Stats 280: Honors Introduction to Statistics and Data Analysis (with a grade of C- or better)   
    • Stats 180 (AP Stats credit) will not fulfill this requirement. Students with Stats 180 credit may take Stats 250 at UM to fulfill this requirement (but will lose their Stats 180 credit), or take Stats 280 at UM (without losing Stats 180 credit)

Steps to Declare

Students must complete the following steps:

  1. Click here to access the Psych & BCN Major Pre-Major Tutorials** (must click the blue "enroll in course" button at the top right corner of the screen)

  2. Complete three items within the tutorial:

    a. Online Orientation video (5 min)

    b. Academic Integrity Quiz (5 min)

    c. Library Modules (30-45 min)

  3. Once these three items are completed, a Declaration Form will be unlocked which you must fill out and submit prior to step 4 (DO NOT complete this form using Chrome)

  4. Meet with a Peer Advisor Monday - Thursday on a walk-in basis to offially declare and complete the process. You will then receive a Psychology or BCN t-shirt!

**The Academic Integrity Quiz and Library Tutorial are not graded and scores will not affect your major or ability to declare

PLEASE NOTE: Walk-in hours for Peer Advisors are available during the fall and winter terms only through the last day of classes. You will need to schedule an appointment with a major advisor if you would like to declare after the last day of classes or during the spring/summer terms.
