Psychology Advising

The Psychology Advisement Team is located on the 8th floor of the Humanities Building.  

During your first semester taking courses in the department, and at any time during your undergraduate coursework, you may connect with Psychology Advisors. 

It is encouraged that you connect with advisors for your degree progress and course selection. 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.

Grad School 101 Workshop



Students:   If you are looking to make a Grad Check appointment, please note the following guidelines:

-If you are unsure of your anticipated graduation date, first make a General Advising appointment to go over your TDA. Once you and the advisor have created a timeline, you may follow the steps below.
- If you know your anticipated graduation date, you may apply for graduation for the appropriate term (i.e fall, spring, summer). From there, you may make a Grad Check appointment with one of our faculty advisors. The system takes 24 hours to register your application, so do not make an appointment the same day as applying. You do not have the pay the $115 graduation fee until the deadline, but you may still complete your Grad Check with a faculty advisor.
