Junior advising:

All Psychology Majors have a mandatory Junior Advising meeting in the Fall semester of Junior year. This is an opportunity for questions, and launching broader discussions about your future. In this meeting, we review your performance in the major, discuss your progress, and consider your future plans.

Junior advising is mandatory. Juniors will be placed on registration hold for the forthcoming Spring semester until after this meeting. This registration hold will be waived only in cases of study abroad during the Fall semester of Junior year. These study abroad students are required to come in for Junior Advising when they return to campus in the Spring.
