Procedure to receive credit for transfer courses
To determine whether a psychology course you took elsewhere will substitute for a USF Psychology course, submit a Substitution Request form. A faculty reviewer will evaluate the syllabus and determine if it is equivalent. A follow-up email will be sent to you within approximately 2 weeks.
- Fill out the Substitution Request form*
- Attach the course syllabus. Course descriptions will not be reviewed. If you do not have the syllabus, contact the psychology department from your previous institution.
- A minimum of 16 units of upper division courses within the Psychology major must be taken at USF.
- If you took a Rhetoric and Composition course at a previous institution, you must still complete a Core A2 Rhetoric and Composition at USF. Psychology majors are required to take RHET 203 Writing in Psychology.
