How to Declare a Psychology Major

To declare a major in psychology, you will need to view our online Carmen module, which covers information such as the difference between the BA and the BS degree, courses required to complete the major, and ways to get involved in the department

  • To access the module, please email psychadvising@osu.edu, making sure to include your first and last name and OSU name.#. You will get a response within 48 business hours that you are added to the module in Carmen with login instructions.
  • After completing the module, you must obtain a 100% on the 5 question quiz.
  • Scoring 100% on the quiz prompts you to complete a survey about yourself and your availability. This survey will send an email to psychadvising@osu.edu and let us know that you have finished the modules. After we receive this email, we will set up your advising appointment.
  • You must meet with a Psychology Academic Advisor to officially declare the major
