AP & Transfer Credit for Psychology

AP or IB Psychology credits do not carry concentration credit. 

Students with a score of 5 on the AP Psychology test or IB Psychology credit will be permitted to replace CLPS 0010 with another CLPS course, with justification and advisor permission. 

Students are not allowed concentration credit for AP Statistics, regardless of their score on the AP exam. Acceptable substitutes for CLPS 0090 are AMPA 1660 and PHP 1501.

Students requesting transfer credit, either from study abroad or from study at another U.S. institution, must submit the following materials to the transfer credit advisor (currently Prof. Simmons):

  1. A copy of the course syllabus (a catalog description is not sufficient).
  2. A copy of the grade report for the course
  3. A copy of the Registrar's form for approval of transfer credit, with the student's information completely filled out.

The transfer credit advisor will consult with the instructor of the appropriate CLPS course for determining course equivalency.  Students must allow a minimum of 2 weeks for the approval process.

Students may request preliminary approval for study abroad courses by submitting a complete syllabus for the course.  Final approval will be given consistent with Registrar's rules.
