Satisfy Degree Requirements
It is important for the student to realize that we offer advice. The student must fully understand the degree requirements and the implications of different career paths in order to make the best decisions. Only the student can make the best decisions for her or his life. The general catalog states, "It is the responsibility of the student to know and to satisfy the degree requirements of his or her academic program." Advisement by the departmental advisor will assist your planning. We are most knowledgeable about Area F (courses appropriate to the major), Area G (major requirements), and the minor section of Area H. The other core areas are the primary responsibility of the Arts & Sciences Office of Academic Assistance in 724 General Classroom Building.
Problems with the advisement system should be addressed to the Undergraduate Advisement Coordinator.

The Academic Evaluation form is used to determine both what classes the student has taken as well as the classes that are remaining to be taken. Both academic assistance, as well as the psychology advisement office, can review Academic Evaluation forms for students.
Students need 120 hours overall to graduate. To determine how many hours you currently have, look at the bottom right of the Academic Evaluation form at HRS APPLIED TO PROGRAM. This number will not include credits you are currently taking.
Students must have 39 hours at the 3000-4000 level course work at Georgia State in order to meet the residency requirement and graduate. Generally, this means students must take an additional 3 classes at the upper level in addition to the required psychology classes. The Academic Evaluation form contains a section which indicates how many courses a student has or will need to fulfill the residency requirement.
Though a minor is not required to complete a degree, getting a minor generally fulfills the requirements to meet residency.
The asterisk (*) symbol on the Academic Evaluation indicates that the requirements for that area are partially completed.
The attached timeline will assist you in determining which courses to take and when.
