You cannot take courses that are restricted to psychology Majors (e.g., Psych 291 and 292).

If you raise your psychology average in the future, please reapply.

2. Honours Psychology (Regular or Co-op) (including Arts Business Regular or Co-op) not added but we offered admission to Three-Year  or Four-Year General Psychology

  • Option 1: Enrol in General Psychology

  • Option 2: Enrol in a different Honours Major if admissible

You cannot take courses that are restricted to Psychology Majors e.g., Psych 291, 292, 391, etc. You could reapply for admission to Honours Psychology in a future term if your Psychology average improves.
