There are two paths that students who are currently in a Concordia degree program can take to enter a Psychology program.

1) The Change of Concentration process – please consult the info sheet for admission requirements & info session dates.

2) The Internal Degree Transfer process – please consult the info sheet for admission requirements & info session dates.

Note 1: If you are not in a Concordia degree program and you wish to be admitted to a Psychology program, then you must apply through the admissions process.

Note 2: The Department of Psychology is not accepting applications for the Minor in Psychology program for the foreseeable future.


As a non-Psychology student, you are allowed to enroll directly in a 200-level PSYC course. For a 300-level course, you must request permission by attending a course override registration session. For the Summer 2024 term we will continue doing overrides virtually via Zoom. Do NOT come in person for an override session! See the Summer 2024 schedule below. We will see one student at a time on a first-come first-served basis and there will be a Zoom waiting room. If you are waiting for a while, it is normal, we typically have a lot of requests and we will get to you in time. Be sure to have your student ID and the course for which you wish to register noted and ready for when your turn comes up.

Please remember that there are NO GUARANTEES as students in Psychology always have priority. If a course is CLOSED or WAITLISTED, unfortunately we cannot help. Always check if the course still has OPEN seats before attempting to register. Also keep in mind that non-Psychology students are permitted a maximum of 1 PSYC course per semester up to a total of 4 courses during their undergraduate degree. Note that PSYC 305, 311, 387, and all 400-level courses are unavailable to students outside of Psychology.

Below is the Summer 2024 schedule for course override registration sessions. The Zoom link for all sessions is
