Baccalaureate students can earn a Psychology Minor when they graduate. Their minor will appear
as an official notation on their transcripts once it is completed and its completion has been verified
with an official audit from the Psychology Department.
Those seeking a Psychology Minor are encouraged to schedule appointments with (1) an academic
advisor in the Psychology Department (274-6765) to clarify the requirements for your Psychology
Minor and (2) an academic advisor in your major department who can help them choose the
psychology courses that will be most relevant to their educational and occupational goals.
General Requirements
Eighteen credit hours of psychology courses are required for a Psychology Minor. These courses
must be offered by the IUPUI Psychology Department or transferred to and accepted by the IUPUI
School of Science as equivalent to those courses offered by the IUPUI Psychology Department.
Courses from other academic departments that contain the word Psychology in their course titles
will not fulfill the requirements for a Psychology Minor (e.g., HPER-P 405 Introduction to Sport
Psychology, P251 Educational Psychology for Elementary Teachers, P490 Research in Educational
Psychology, or R234 Social Psychology).
Specific Psychology Course Requirements

A minimum cumulative grade point average of 2.0 in all minor courses is required.
Residency Requirement
A minimum of 6 credit hours in the minor must be completed at IUPUI.
Audit Requirement and Deadline
It is your responsibility to request an audit to verify the completion of your Psychology Minor
because the Psychology Department does not know when you plan to graduate.
The deadline for submitting the request for your audit is
ONE SEMESTER BEFORE YOU
PLAN TO GRADUATE
. In the event that the audit reveals that you will not complete the
requirements for your minor before you graduate, submitting your request before this deadline
will provide the Psychology Department with sufficient time to inform you of this situation so
you can register for the courses you need to complete your minor during your final semester.
The form to request this audit appears on the following page.
