Advising

The Department of Psychology takes seriously its responsibility to provide undergraduate students with access to courses, research opportunities, and advisers. As partners in your academic success, the department staff encourages you to take time to fully explore the information and links we have provided for you. By becoming an informed student, you will have control of your progress toward your degree.

Some of the most common issues we can help you with include:

  • Academic advising for the psychology major/ minor
  • Giving recommendations for courses related to your interests
  • Providing transfer student information
  • Coordinating petitions
  • Confirming Graduation status

All psychology majors and minors are strongly encouraged to meet with an Academic Advisor at least once each semester. This will help to ensure that you are on track with your academic plans and program requirements. Students are only advised in person; Academic Advisors do not give information or offer advising over the phone or via email. This procedure ensures that you are fully informed of your academic status, and receive accurate information on your progress toward graduation.
