Transfer Students (2-year or 4-year institution)

UIUC Psychology is a research-focused program with an emphasis on biological psychology.  Students interested in counseling might consider Sociology (LAS), Human Development and Family Studies (ACES), or Community Health (AHS).

Please consult the UIUC Admissions Transfer Handbook for all transfer requirements.  This page deals only with Psychology requirements.

Admission requirements for sophomore transfer include completion of comparable coursework to the following UIUC courses: PSYC 100, Introductory Psychology; STAT 100, Statistics.  Completion of one additional Psychology course is highly recommended.

Admission requirements for junior transfer include completion of comparable coursework to the following UIUC courses:  PSYC 100, Introductory Psychology; STAT 100, Statistics; and two additional Psychology courses.

Sophomore transfers should complete at least two and junior transfers are required to complete at least three Psychology courses with a GPA of 3.0 in those courses prior to transfer, one of which must be an equivalency to UIUC PSYC 100, Introductory Psychology.  The remaining two must be chosen from any articulated 200-level Psychology course, which may or may not be posted at the U.SELECTwebsite.  Information concerning non-posted courses may be obtained by contacting the Course Articulation Coordinator at 217-333-1891.
