Topics That Can Be Handled Through Appointments:

  • Class Scheduling. We can review your DARS and provide a checklist that outlines the Psychology major/minor requirements that you have left. We can also review courses that are in your schedule planner on WebPortal and determine how they fit into your Psychology requirements.
    • Incoming transfer students: If you would like to plan courses for the upcoming semester(s), please ensure that you have electronic copies of your unofficial transcript(s) as this is what we will use to gauge which Psychology courses are likely to meet our prep and major requirements when SDSU reviews your records. We recommend having these ready and downloaded on your computer for easy access.
  • Declaration forms for the major, emphasis or a minor. We can review your records, provide information on requirements, and complete declaration forms if appropriate. Note: Transfer students cannot declare the major until impaction criteria are completed. However, we can still assist with planning classes.

Topics That Can Be Handled Through Email:

  • Course Eligibility questions. During early registration, course eligibility is not checked. If you sign up for a course and receive a “Contingency” warning, we can check what prerequisite you may not have. Similarly, if you are a transfer student who is trying to meet impaction criteria to declare the Psychology major and have difficulty signing up for upper division courses, we may be able to help. We can also answer any general questions you may have regarding the completion of pre-requisite courses and other Psychology requirements.
    • Use subject heading: Course Eligibility, provide student rank (e.g., junior, senior).
    • Include this information: Course number and section (if applicable).
  • A petition/RAAR is used when you want to see if a course taken at another institution can be equivalent to an SDSU psychology major/minor requirement.
    • Use subject heading: Petitions, provide student rank (e.g., junior, senior).
    • Include this information: The course number from SDSU and the course number, course name, college name, and a syllabus from the other institution. If you do not still have your syllabus, try contacting your former professor or department offering the course before contacting us.
  • IS3D course approvals/petitions. Most IS3D forms can be addressed without an appointment. Scan and attach paperwork in an email to us.
    • Use subject heading: IS3D, provide student rank (e.g., junior, senior).
    • Include this information: Attach form.

For all email questions, be sure to include your first, middle and last name and your rank (e.g., junior, senior, etc.) along with any information requested above. If you have multiple questions, they can go in one email but please adjust the subject heading accordingly. If you have other questions not addressed above, you can email us as well. We can then advise you on whether or not an appointment is needed.
