CSU Students Who Wish to Change Their Major to Psychology

Summer 2021, students should contact either Julie.moore@colostate.edu or psych_advising@mail.colostate.edu to set up a meeting with an advisor to change their major.

During this session you will learn about the five concentrations in psychology. You will also learn how your current and past credits count towards the major and you will be given course recommendations for the next semester, should you choose to declare. There will be plenty of time for questions. We look forward to seeing you!
