Advising

Advising Information for Psychology Students:

Advising: Top 10 List

Important:

Psychology majors must maintain a minimum 2.50 GPA.  Students coming into the major will take PSYC 2998, confirming admission requirements, including GPA and pre-requisites.  The 0 credit hour course should be completed to register for upper level courses.

All psychology majors will meet with their advisor during the university’s prescribed advising period, generally the month before registration opens.  Students who have not been advised cannot register for classes.

Upper level classes tend to fill quickly.  It is department policy that “overrides” (late entrance into closed classes) will only be granted to seniors within two semesters of graduation who hold a completed Application for Graduation Form, signed by the student’s advisor and the Registrar.
