Current Registration Procedures for PSYCH 496, 498, and 499

Please follow the procedure outlined below to registration for the following types of credit: PSYCH 496 (Peer Teaching), PSYCH 498 (Directed Reading), and PSYCH 499 (Undergraduate Research).

In response to restrictions related to Covid-19 (e.g., social distancing and office closures), we have amended the process by which undergraduations will obtain add codes for PSYCH 496, 498, and 499. The lab faculty (for 499 credit), or supervising faculty (for 496 or 498 credit), will need to provide information about the student(s) they would like to sign up for credit. In the case of PSYCH 499 credit, faculty must also provide a syllabus outlining what the student(s) will be doing with them. The information and syllabus should be emailed directly to William Kaplan,, in the Psychology Department Main Office. William will then send an add code to the student(s) via email.

The faculty email must include:

  • Student's first and last name
  • Student number
  • Student's email address
  • Course number (PSYCH 496, 498, or 499)
  • Name of faculty
  • Project title (if PSYCH 499 credit)
  • Number of credits for spring quarter

If you have any questions, please contact William Kaplan,, or Carrie Perrin,
