TRANSFER AND CO-MAJOR INFORMATION
Transfer students are strongly advised to have their credits
evaluated as soon as possible after they first matriculate. Those
needing evaluations by the Psychology Department should arrange to see Dr. Robert Lanson (718-997-3203).
Evening students should contact Dr. Nancy Hemmes (718-997-3561).
Additional Semesters in Residence
Many transfer students come in as lower juniors. Because the requirements
for a psychology major require four courses which can not be taken concurrently,
and because transfer students in their first semester register last and thus
can rarely get into a required course, transfer students are advised that
it may be necessary to spend one or two additional semesters on campus to
complete all the required courses.
Education co-majors are particularly affected by this situation. Education
co-majors should be aware that because the Ed department requires them to
complete coursework before their "professional year", it may be
necessary to spend one or two additional semesters to satisfy the coursework
requirement in their co-major.
Transfer students should be sure that they give the registrar a copy of
their completed course evaluation form within the first semester of taking
courses at Queens. This step will greatly facilitate the final approval of
your course credits for graduation. Note that both Psychology 213W and the Advanced Laboratory
Course from the Psychology 311-321 list are required courses and must be taken at Queens College.
