Guides and Checklists
The sub-plans are an optional aspect of the psychology major that help to direct your coursework in a particular area. Completing a sub-plan will require more credit hours than the general degree for both the BA and the BS. If you choose to complete one of the sub-plans it will be displayed on your transcript.

Checklists PRIOR to Fall 2015
- Please contact the academic advisor to determine the appropriate checklist for you.
- In general, students may choose to follow requirements from any academic catalog in effect during their years of enrollment, however, they must follow all requirements of the catalog selected. For example, if using the academic catalog from the year you entered, the requirements from other catalogs are not applicable; or if using the academic catalog from the current year, the requirements from other catalogs (i.e., the year you entered) are not applicable.
- A minimum of 125 credit hours is required to graduate, with the last 30 credit hours acquired at UND. Transfer students are required to complete a minimum of 60 credits of the 125 credit hours at a four-year institution. All student must also have completed at least 36 credit hours of upper-division course (i.e., 300-level or above).
- Double use of courses:
- Courses within the major or required by a program may, at the same time, fulfill Essential Studies Requirements for the University. (There are a few exceptions to this general rule. These exceptions are stated under departmental requirements).
- Courses may NOT generally be used, however, to count at the same time toward the total credits needed for 2 majors, 2 minors or a major and a minor.
- In certain cases courses may count toward a major (or minor) and, at the same time fulfill “Extra Departmental Requirements” for another major or program. Consult college or departmental offices for more specific information.
- Students are encouraged to complete a Status Report Request through the college of Arts & Sciences after 75 credits have been acquired. This will determine which classes the student will still need to complete in order to graduate. It is recommended that this be done at least one time before the student’s last semester. Students may only request one Status Report per semester enrolled. Students can also conduct an electronic degree audit themselves and receive this information at any time.
- In order to graduate, students must apply for graduation within the first four weeks of the semester in which the student expects to receive the degree. The specific date for each semester is listed in the published academic calendar. Students applying for two or more degrees to be awarded simultaneously must receive approval from each College granting the degrees.
- Transfer students should consult with their advisor or the Undergraduate Program Director in order to determine which courses at their previous institutions count toward these requirements.
- Psychology Major foreign language requirement: other than completing the required, listed courses, competency may be established with the language placement exam, or CLEP test.
