Declaring as a Psychology Major

  • Students are admitted to UMD as Pre-Psychology Majors
  • Students are eligible to become a Psychology major after they have taken General Psychology, completed at least 24 credits, and earned a minimum overall GPA of 2.5 (2.0 effective Fall 2024).
  • Current students transferring to Psychology -> you will first be admitted as a pre-psychology major until you meet the requirements
  • Complete list of requirements
  • Students that meet the requirements to move from pre-major to major will be automatically changed each semester after grades are released.
  • Students that wish to move from pre-major to major that fall outside of this typical schedule may come to 320 Bohannon Hall to speak with our Executive Office & Administrative Specialist regarding the switch.
