Winter 2021: Important selection dates for Psychology courses

Psychology students: It is CRITICAL that you select your courses as soon as possible! Psychology majors and minors have priority access to most PSYC courses, but once priority access is removed (November 30), the majority of PSYC courses will become full, and you will no longer be able to enroll. Course size is NOT expected to increase over time. Once a course is full, it is full! *

Non-psychology students: Students in some non-psychology majors/minors also have priority access to some PSYC courses. If your program requires a PSYC course, or has a PSYC restricted elective, you will have priority access to that course.

Be sure that you know when your course selection window opens.
