Academic Advising

If you need to declare Psychology as your major or minor, you first will need to arrange advising in Psychology. Advising can help you with course selection, planning toward the degree, and referrals. Additionally, Psychology offers advising on a variety of topics to get the most out of your undergraduate experience in Psychology and plan out your future. For example, we offer advising on figuring out your interests and a career path, getting involved in extracurricular and enrichment activities, and planning for graduate school.

One-on-one advising will begin again on June 6.
