If you're interested in declaring a major in Psychology or the ABA track we encourage you to do so by the end of your sophomore year. Transfer students intending to major in psychology should contact the Psychology department's academic advisor when you arrive on campus. Please note: declaring an interest in psychology on your admissions application does not mean you are a major, all students enter Binghamton as undeclared.
* To declare your major in Psychology you must have received a C or higher in both PSYC 111 and PSYC 243.
* To declare you major in the Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) track you must have received a C or higher in PSYC 111 and PSYC 243, and have taken or be taking PSYC 355. Please not that in order to graduate in the ABA track you must achieve a B or higher in all ABA track core courses, including PSYC 355.

Paper copies of the form are also available in the advising office. Evaluation of these petitions can take up to a week or more.

You must meet with your instructor to determine if you will be permitted to receive an incomplete in a course. Incompletes are warranted when a student has a personal or medical emergency that prevents them from completing coursework. We highly encourage students and faculty to use the Incomplete Contract to ensure that all parties know exactly what coursework remains and when it must be completed by. Copies of the contract should be provided to the instructor, the student, and the advising office (S4-230B).
