Pathways to Psychology for Transfer Students

Leaving one college to enroll in another school can be confusing.  At Western we want to turn the confusion into confidence.

Yes, you will be learning about a new campus, new professors and new courses, but these changes should be exciting and full of possibility.  We believe our university, our faculty and our program are a great combination.  We think you will find that our combination can be just right as your next college and as your pathway into psychology. 

What does the pathway to WCU look like?
