  • Sample academic plans can be found on each of our major pages; due to the flexible nature of our majors, we cannot create individual plans for students. For academic planning, please bring your proposed academic plan to our walk-in advising hours for you and the advisor to review together.

First-Year Students:

  • We will begin meeting with first-year students in week 3 of the Fall quarter. Prior to meeting with an advisor during the Fall quarter, students are required to attend a Psychology Department Orientation session.
