Advising & Registration

Advising System

Students who enter the University as first year psychology majors are considered "provisional majors" and are advised in the University Advising Center until they complete PSYC 401 and 402, at which time they can confirm their major. "Provisional majors" are accorded all the rights and privileges of any psychology major.

Undergraduate advising in the department is conducted jointly by the department's academic counselor and the full-time faculty. The academic counselor has primary responsibility for advising confirmed and newly declared freshman and sophomore psychology majors and is the initial contact for all majors in a state of transition (readmitted, transfer, newly declared students, etc.). The academic counselor assists students in all phases of educational planning and decision making, including pre-registration, long-range academic planning, degree and program requirements, and career selection and planning. Junior and senior psychology majors are assigned to a faculty adviser with appropriate consideration for student preferences. The advising relationship with a faculty member is designed to encourage refining career and educational decisions.
