The Psychology Advisement Office is located on the 8th floor of the Humanities Building, H-830J . During your first semester taking courses in the department, and at any time during your undergraduate coursework, you may schedule an appointment to speak with the advisors. At these meetings, your advisor will conduct a preliminary evaluation and/or advise you of the psychology courses you need to complete for the major or minor.
It is highly encouraged that you make an appointment by following the link below as walk-ins are rarely taken. Also, be aware of registration windows as that is a high-volume time for the office, and the odds of getting an appointment before your registration date decrease dramatically if you wait. If you are a transfer student in need of quick advice, please see our "Quick Advisement Guide" down below.
