Explanation of Three-Part Course Numbers

The number preceding each course title is divided into three parts. The first two digits are the administrative code (standing for the school or faculty offering the course), the next three digits are the subject code, and the final three digits specify the course code.

826  School Psychology

Course Codes

Courses coded from 500 to 799 are graduate courses. Usually, fall semester courses end with odd numbers and spring semester courses end with even numbers.

Two course codes separated by a comma indicate that each semester course may be taken independently of the other. Two course codes separated by a hyphen indicate that satisfactory completion of the first semester course is a prerequisite for the second semester; the first semester may be taken for credit without taking the second, except if a statement is added to indicate that both semester courses must be completed in order to receive credit.


Credits awarded for the successful completion of each course are indicated in parentheses following the course title. The notation E indicates that the course is experiential, and the credits do not count toward the total credits required to graduate. However, E credits are listed on official transcripts and counted in the total number of credits for the semester. Examples of E-credit courses include graduate assistantships, professional practicum placement (in a work setting), and psychological clinic practicum (treating clients in the GSAPP clinic under supervision).

The notation BA indicates that the number of credits is determined by arrangement with the department offering the course.

Individual course offerings may vary from year to year as circumstances dictate. The university reserves the right to cancel or modify any course or program listed herein.

Individuals who are not matriculated in any of the GSAPP Psy.D. programs or the School of Graduate Studies clinical Ph.D. program but who wish to take courses offered by GSAPP should consult the section on Accessibility to Fall and Spring GSAPP Courses in the Academic Policies and Procedures chapter.

All applications (therapy) courses require a minimum of one case with appropriate supervision.
