We are eager to make your transition to CWU as smooth as possible and make your learning experience as a psychology major or minor both interesting and useful. Our faculty and staff are ready to help you. Visit the CWU Transfer Center at https://www.cwu.edu/transfer-center/prospective-transfer-students for pre-admission advising as well as questions about admission, dual admission, general education courses, and how credits transfer.
Generally PSY 101 is a direct transfer from most institutions. It may be possible for you to use a course you took at another institution to substitute for additional CWU psychology courses. Review the rules for course substitutions in psychology using courses taken at other institutions at https://www.cwu.edu/psychology/transfer-course-substitutions
We want our psychology majors to take the majority of their psychology courses at CWU. We usually advise community college students to take only introductory psychology and maybe one elective course in psychology at a community college.
As a transfer student, don’t worry if you can’t register for required core classes in the major in your first quarter. Our continuing students register before transfer students and some major classes might be full.
You can also register for one or more classes from the required course groups that do not require PSY 300 as a prerequisite. Examples of applicable courses include PSY 303 Analysis of Everyday Behavior (4 credits), PSY 313 Developmental Psychology (4 credits), PSY 346 Social Psychology (4 credits), and PSY 449 Abnormal Psychology (4 credits).
