Undergraduate Advising

The undergraduate advising team can help you declare a Psychology major, Psychology minor, or a Consumer Psychology minor. We also help with various issues throughout your undergraduate experience such as course selection, research guidance, and post-college discussions.

During the remainder of the Spring semester advising will be available through email and telephone calls during regular office hours (see schedule below).  Students can email an advisor with the topic they would like to discuss, along with a phone number if you want an advisor to call you, and we will reply or call you back within our scheduled office hours.  We will make every effort to reply in a timely manner, however if a student emails an advisor outside of regular office hours they may have to wait until the next scheduled office hours for a response.

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.
