Graduation Reception & Recognition Ceremony
The Psychology Department was proud and pleased to be the host of the Psychology Department recognition ceremony for the graduating class of 2013. The event was held abroad the majestic San Francisco Belle provided by the amazing staff and crew members of the Hornblower Cruises and Events. The night started with amazing San Francisco weather providing spectacular views of the San Francisco Bay Area. The night to say the least was magical and a true tribute to the graduates and their accomplishments. The Department wants to thank the graduates and their supportive families for making the event truly inspirational and memorable.
Psychology department seniors that will be graduating this semester will need to fill out a copy of the graduation application and first have it reviewed and signed by their faculty advisor. They can then drop off their application at the department office (EP 301) to obtain the Department Chair's signature. Students will receive a call once the application is ready to be picked up (usually a two day turn around time). Students should then take their signed application to the Bursar's window at One Stop Student Services, pay the fee, and turn their application in at the Registrar's window.

Psychology Major Program Impaction
The Psychology major is an impacted program, which means there are more students interested in the major than we can accommodate. Therefore, admission to the Psychology major is a selective and competitive process. The Department faculty, in consultation with the University Admissions Office, reviews impaction admissions criteria on an annual basis. Impaction approval was granted by the California State University Chancellor's office beginning in July 2009.
Temporary Suspension of the Psychology Minor
The minor is being reviewed for temporary suspension. During this process, we are not accepting any new psychology minors. Students who have already declared the minor may continue their planned course of study.
