Advising

Welcome to Psychology Undergraduate Advising!

Return to Required Letter Grading Policy Begins Summer Session 1, 2021

The Psychology Department is no longer allowing flexible P/NP grading for Psych Major or Psych Minor coursework beginning Summer Session One 2021 and forward (including Fall 2021). The last quarter for flexible grading options was Spring 2021. Beginning Summer 2021, we will revert to our usual grading requirements as outlined on our web pages - psych majors: statistics and all upper-division major courses must be letter-graded and psych minor courses.

Advisors are Here to Help You!

The Psychology Advisors are available to assist you with psychology major & minor requirements, degree audits, academic policies & procedures, research information, course planning, and other psychology-related questions. We're also here to connect you to a variety of campus facilities & resources such as the career center, community centers, disability services, teaching & learning commons, study abroad, and more.
