Academic Advising

Each semester, psychology majors need to be approved for registration by their faculty advisor. Majors should follow the following steps before meeting with their advisor for approval.

1) Students should review the requirements of their concentration.

If a student has not yet declared their concentration, they can do so at the Office of Records (A-203). The program evaluation will not be accurate until a psychology concentration is declared.

2) Students should review their program evaluation and note the courses that are still needed. This can be found by logging into Self Service and clicking on the “Program Evaluation” link under Academic Planning.

3) Students should review the schedule of classes to determine which courses are being offered. This can be found in Self Service by clicking on the “Search for Sections” link under Registration.

4) After students have planned their schedule for the semester, they should contact their advisor to request a meeting.

5) After the student has been given approval by their advisor and the Bursar, they can register during their priority registration time.

Given the high number of psychology majors and minors, advising appointments fill up quickly. In order for students to be cleared before their priority registration time, students should complete this process early and meet with their advisor as soon as possible. A failure to do so may result in a delayed registration approval and an inability to secure a seat in a required class.

Thank you for during your part in this important aspect of academic planning. Your preparation helps the advising process to work more efficiently and ensures that each faculty member can provide quick and helpful advising to each of our students.
