Transfer Student Information

Welcome to the Psychology Department! Transfer students may begin the Psychology major any semester. If you are looking for a career in psychology, social work, mental health counseling, or education the Psychology major is a great option for you!

Here are some helpful tips so that you can be as prepared as possible when you transfer to Lehman:

  • We encourage students to have already completed General Psychology prior to transferring because it is a prerequisite for all psychology courses, except for PSY200 (Critical Thinking). However, if you have not completed the course, it is not a problem.
  • Statistical Methods in Psychology (PSY226) is a required course. It would be beneficial to students to complete the prerequisite for taking PSY226 prior to transferring, more specifically, the equivalent of MATH 132, or MATH 172, or Math 174 or Math 175. However, if you have not completed the course, it is not a problem.
  • Many of our classes are in-person so please be prepared to come to campus!
  • Visit the Virtual Transfer Center for some additional resources.

If you haven’t applied to Lehman College yet, please go the Admissions Office website for more information on transfer requirements and the application process.

Once you have been accepted you will receive detailed information from the Admissions Office regarding the next steps toward becoming enrolled at Lehman. Please note that this process does take some time, so apply to transfer as early as possible! After your transfer credit evaluation (TCE) is complete and you have completed the onboarding process, please google Lehman College Department of Psychology Advisement for a list of advisors, their availability, and Zoom link. The advisors can answer your questions.
We hope to see you on campus or online soon!
