Admission Requirements

Transfer students

The upper division B.A. in Psychology is open to students who hold associate degrees or have completed approximately 54 credits (freshman and sophomore years) of a liberal arts-based college degree program. Students with an associate degree from Suffolk County Community College may seamlessly transfer into the program. Students transferring from other colleges will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis, and may be required to complete additional specific course work. Students complete their freshman and sophomore years at a community college or four-year college and their junior and senior years at LIU Brentwood.
