Psychology Classified as STEM Instructional Program

Expiration Date: 
Sunday, December 12, 2021

Our Classification of Instructional Programs (CIP) code change has been approved for both our undergraduate and graduate curriculum. This change, from the old "42.0101 – Psychology, General", to the current "42.27 – Research and Experimental" code reflects the strong STEM emphasis in our department's curriculum.  This is a major win for international students as it impacts eligibility for Optional Practical Training. Special thank you to Lori Olsen, Shijing Zhou, and Drs. Melynda Casement, Nash Unsworth, and Jagdeep Bala for making this change possible!
