However, there are exceptions to this rule - for example, if you take PSY 250 (Statistics) you may sit for the Subject exams in Introduction to Psychology, Educational Psychology, and/or Human Growth and Development. If you have questions about possible exceptions, please contact the Registrar or the Advising Center.
