Core Requirements: Minimum of 38-40 credits in the core curriculum required of all students. Students who enter as first-time freshmen must take an entering freshman and rising junior assessment to complete core requirements.
Program Admission Requirements: To declare a major in Psychology, students must have a minimum overall GPA of 2.0 and must complete PSYC 210 with a minimum grade of “C.” All University College Core Curriculum courses must be fully completed before acceptance to the online degree completion program. Transfer students are eligible for acceptance to the online degree completion program if their transfer credits fulfill FSU’s University College Core Curriculum requirements.
Other Major Requirements: A final grade of “C” or higher must be earned in each course used to fulfill requirements for a minor, electives, or a concentration. At least 50% of the major courses (a minimum of nine Psychology courses) must be completed at Fayetteville State University (on campus, online, at Fort Bragg, or through any other FSU distance learning program). A free elective is any course offered or accepted by the university that has not already been used to fulfill other requirements. Elective selection should be based on the student’s academic interests and eventual graduate school and/ or career goals.
Graduation Requirements: All graduating seniors are required to complete the Graduating Senior Assessment after completing 90 or more semester hours (including credit by examination), but not later than the graduation semester. A minimum final grade of “C” or higher in all Psychology program courses is required for graduation. A minimum overall GPA of 2.0 is required for graduation. A minimum of 120 credit hours are necessary for graduation. Even if a course requirement is waived, the credit hour requirement remains.
