All courses other than YC Psychology courses require advance approval of the Psychology Department if taken for PSY Major/Minor credit. This policy includes courses taken within Yeshiva University but outside of the College such as courses at the Azrieli Graduate School of Jewish Education or at the Ferkauf Graduate School of Psychology. Please remember to seek approval of potential courses before you enroll, as requests for course approval submitted after a course has already begun will not be accepted.

* STA 1021 is a valid substitute for PSY 1021 only for students who were full time on campus before April 2014
