Important Spring Registration Information
- CD Seniors graduating in Fall 2018 who have not yet taken CD401, will need to register for this course in Spring. We will not offer CD401 in Fall.
- We will offer one section of PSY344: Behavioral Genetics in Spring. This is a support course option for psychology students only! Psychology students can select from BIO302 or PSY344. Child Development students can select to substitute PSY344 for BIO302. HOWEVER, the majority of seats in PSY344 will be held for PSY majors only. This will leave very few seats for CD students so please plan wisely. CD students who do take PSY344 will need to complete a course substitution form with their advisor.
The Tentative Course Offerings for next year is NOW updated. Use this to plan your courses next year. Remember that PolyPlanner is not as up to date as our link.
