For policies and procedures related to number of credits, late adds, late grade submission, and other areas, please visit this page.
In response to restrictions related to Covid-19 (e.g., social distancing and office closures), we have amended the process by which undergraduations will obtain add codes for PSYCH 496, 498, and 499. The lab faculty (for 499 credit), or supervising faculty (for 496 or 498 credit), will need to provide information about the student(s) they would like to sign up for credit. In the case of PSYCH 499 credit, faculty must also provide a syllabus outlining what the student(s) will be doing with them. The information and syllabus should be emailed directly to William Kaplan,, in the Psychology Department Main Office. William will then send an add code to the student(s) via email.

The faculty email must include:
  • Student's first and last name
  • Student number
  • Student's email address
  • Course number (PSYCH 496, 498, or 499)
  • Name of faculty
  • Project title (if PSYCH 499 credit)
  • Number of credits for the quarter
If you have any questions, please contact William Kaplan,, or Carrie Perrin,
