NOTE:  We request that Psychology majors successfully pass the Departmental APA Online Training.  This is usually administered in one of the 200-level developmental courses (PSY 205, 206, or 207) and should be successfully completed before proceeding onto any 300-level courses.  Transfer students coming in at the 300-level must meet with his/her advisor to make arrangements to complete this before the end of his/her first semester in the major.
