Information for

All applications for a Psychology Major for University of Waterloo, St. Jerome's and Renison students are coordinated through the Psychology Undergraduate Office (PAS 3007).

Step #2 differs depending on your faculty - Science (BSc), Arts (BA), or Other.

Admission decisions for Psychology applicants:

  • You will receive an email (Official student e-mail address policy) from the Psychology Undergraduate Advisor notifying you if you were accepted into the Psychology program.
  • We will continue to consider applications for the Psychology Major from current UWaterloo students until the second week of classes for any term.
  • Frequently asked questions (FAQ) regarding admission decisions for Arts or Science students.

Additional Notes:

  • For students admitted to Departmental Co-op (Non-Arts & Business), the Co-op portion of their plan will not show in their program on Quest until their 2B Winter term, as this is the first term the student participates in the co-op job search process and pays the first co-op fee. 
  • The Department of Psychology reserves the right to remove students from a Co-op plan if, after the Fall 2A term, a student's Psych major average drops below that which is required (70% for Arts, 75% for Science), or if a student fails to meet the requirements outlined by the Department of Psychology. 
  • If documented extenuating circumstances (e.g., physical/mental illness, bereavement, etc.) affected your grades and you did not report this information on your PSYCH Major Online Application form, please contact the Psychology Undergraduate Advisor
  • Admission to the Psychology Major is at the discretion of the Department of Psychology.
