registration process.

requirements for the major…

a minimum of 36 credits:
– 15 -16 credits from required courses, and the
remaining 21 credits from electives.

do not count toward the major but count
toward graduation.

TIME TO COMPLETE THE MAJOR
• Because of the prerequisite structure,
you need a minimum of three semesters to
complete the required courses.
• If you co-major in Education, it may take
even longer because of Education
Department requirements.
ADVANCED COURSE REQUIREMENT
• Students who declare the major after Fall
2009 also, in addition to the Advanced
Laboratory Course, have to take 2 elective
courses from the 300-level courses.
•If you are a transfer student, you will be
registering after regularly matriculated students.
•Many of the popular and required courses may
be closed.
•The Psychology Department does not give
overtallies. Once a course is filled, every seat in
the room is accounted for and there is no more
room.
•The instructor does not have the authority to put
you into the class.
WHAT TO DO?
• Students can be placed on waiting lists for
EVENING and WEEKEND courses, but
NOT for DAY session courses.
• For evening courses, students must fill out
an application found at Razran 299.
• For weekend courses, you should contact
the Weekend College office in Kiely 137.
For your first semester at Queens
College, flexibility is the name of
the game.
You might put off taking courses required for
the major until the next semester.
Sign up for any open Psychology course
that interests you and for which you have
the prerequisites.
REGISTRATION
• You will be able to register for courses
online using esims. If a class becomes
available because someone dropped it or
because a student was dropped by the
Bursar for non-payment it will become
available online and the first person who
gets to it can get in.
$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$
• As you can see from the previous slide, it
is EXTREMELY important to pay your bills
or make sure that financial aid payments
have been applied to your bill before the
deadline.
• If the Bursar drops you, the department
cannot put you back into the course.
HOW TO AVOID THESE
PROBLEMS IN THE FUTURE
PREREGISTRATION
PREREGISTRATION:
WHAT IT IS AND HOW TO DO IT
• Required courses are always in great
demand. The Psychology Department
offers preregistration to its majors, so that
majors will have first crack at Psychology
courses.
• Preregistration is done on esims in
descending order by class.
• Preregistration dates and times are posted
on our website.
OUR WEBSITE AND LISTSERV
• You can find important information on our
website:
www.qcpages.qc.edu/Psychology
• Be among the first in your class to receive
important departmental information by
joining our listserv. Our homepage tells
you how to join.
WHY YOU SHOULDN’T MISS
PREREGISTRATION
• If you miss preregistration, you will have to take
your chances with whatever courses are left
after the majors have registered.
• If you miss preregistration and then come to the
department asking to be put into closed courses,
you will be disappointed to find out that even if
you are an upper senior, you can’t be put into a
closed course and might have to spend an extra
semester waiting for an open section.
SUMMARY
• The first semester for transfer students can be
difficult.
• Later semesters need not be so, if you take
advantage of preregistration.
• Be sure to sign up for our listserv.
• Check our website for answers to questions
about the department and the major
requirements.
