IMPORTANT INFORMATION FOR MAJORS WHO MATRICULATED AFTER FALL 2013

Posted Posted in Important Information

There are new requirements which are effective for all Psychology majors who entered QC starting Fall 2013. The new requirement specifies a minimum grade of C in Psych 101, 107, 213W, and Advanced Lab courses even if the courses were transferred to QC.

A minimum grade of C- is required for all other Psychology electives. The major also requires that you complete two 300-level courses (in addition to the Advanced Lab course).

These grade requirements also apply to grades from ALL transferred Psychology courses. For example, if you received transfer credit for Psych 101 taken elsewhere with a C- or less, you will NOT receive credit toward the Psychology major or minor. You would need to repeat the course at QC to meet the minimum grade requirement. Ignoring this requirement can have serious consequences that may keep you from graduating.
