Department of Psychology at Illinois State University
Students admitted into a master's sequence (Cognitive and Behavioral Sciences, Developmental Psychology, Industrial/Organizational-Social Psychology, or Quantitative Psychology) may complete the coursework for a second (“dual”) sequence.
Students should complete the Application for Dual Sequences. Click on the link to download the application. The application is an interactive Microsoft Word document that should be completed on the computer. Handwritten applications will not be accepted. Students should print the completed application, sign and date the form, and then submit the signed application to their current sequence coordinator.
If appropriate, the sequence coordinator may write a letter of support for the application. The sequence coordinator should submit the application and letter of support, if applicable to the coordinator of the second sequence. The faculty members of the second sequence will review the application and determine if the sequence is appropriate based on the student's goals, qualifications, and the second sequence's resources (e.g., space limitation, faculty availability, etc.).
The coordinator of the second sequence has the authority to approve or deny the application for dual sequences. The coordinator of the second sequence will complete the lower portion of the application, and will submit the application to the Graduate Programs Office. The Graduate Programs Office will notify students of the status of their application.
The application form (signed by the coordinator of the first sequence) must be submitted to the coordinator of the second sequence no later than November 1.
If dual sequences are approved, students must complete the University's online Graduate Application in order to be admitted to the second sequence. Click on the link to access the University's Graduate Application website. Students should notify the department when they have completed the application. The Graduate Programs Office will notify Graduate Admission of the dual sequence application. When the department has approved the application for the second sequence, students are formally admitted to the second sequence. Students will be notified by the Graduate Programs Office when final admission to the dual sequences has been completed.
