Transfer Students

If you are a transfer student, you may have taken some Psychology courses at your previous institution. To determine whether the Psychology course you took elsewhere will substitute for a USF Psychology program requirement, you will need to submit a Substitution Request form. 

To submit your course for review, you must:

  1. Fill out the Substitution Request form
  2. Attach the course syllabusCourse descriptions are not sufficient and will not be reviewed. If you do not have the syllabus, you can attain a copy by contacting the psychology department from your previous institution.

A faculty reviewer will assess the contents of the syllabus and determine if the course is equivalent. A follow-up email will be sent to you once your course has been reviewed.
