majorApplying to Major in Psychology and Plan Selection

Students interested in applying for a Major in Psychology (either BAH or BScH) are asked to register between April 26 at 8:30 am and May 7 at 4:30 pm EST via a form on the Arts and Science website. Admission is not first-come-first-serve during this window - admission is based on grades. Once final grades are released on May 12, the Faculty of Arts and Science and Department of Psychology will be admitting students to the Psychology Major based on PSYC100 grades and cumulative GPAs.

Students will be notified regarding their acceptance into the Psychology Major before the plan selection window opens in SOLUS. Students who are not admitted to the Psychology Major will be able to apply to other plans, including the Psychology Art Medials and Biology and Psychology Specialization plan, during the plan selection window.

integrityReminder - Academic integrity and consideration

The end of term is a stressful time and we understand the pressure on students during the current climate. We also acknowledge that it can be tempting to take short cuts and resort to desperate measures during tough times. Please remember that resources are available through Student Wellness Services and the Academic Considerations Process to help you when things get too overwhelming.

Top five things you should know going into exams:
  1. If you are too ill (physically or mentally) to write an exam do not write. If you write while ill and perform poorly, this is considered to be a valid attempt and your mark will stand. Rather, you should submit a request for academic consideration. For more information, please see
  2. If you experienced extenuating circumstances this term and need to drop a class late, please reach out to an academic advisor right away. Call our office at 613-533-2470 to book an appointment and we will be happy to review your options with you.
  3. Check and double check your exam schedule! Missing an exam because you misread the date or time can lead to you earning a zero grade on your exam. If you are studying outside of the Eastern Standard Time Zone (EST) make sure you account for the time difference.
  4. Be prepared! Do you have a reliable computer and internet connection to write your exams? Do you have the software you need loaded onto your computer? Have you performed a test-run? Make sure everything is in good working order well before your first exam to avoid running into any stressful situations during your exams.
  5. Be careful! Before you write any exam, put your phone and study notes away well out of reach from your workstation. Even just being in possession of these items can lead to a departure from academic integrity.
