Academic Advising

Undergraduate Student Services and Academic Advising

Our goal is that you will not only establish a meaningful, supportive relationship with your adviser, but that you will also learn skills and knowledge that will assist you in meeting your personal, professional, and academic goals.

  • Students will meet with their adviser at least once a semester and access them as needed.
  • Students will identify their degree requirements as represented on their degree audit and apply it to the development and implementation of their long-term educational plan.
  •  Students will graduate in a timely manner by using their educational plan and selecting appropriate courses each semester.
  • Students will utilize appropriate campus resources to assist them in achieving their academic, professional, and personal goals.
  • Students will articulate how courses they select fit into a well-rounded education.

 

Scheduling Appointments

Students in the Psychology major or exploring the psychology major can schedule appointments that range from 15 to 30 minutes depending on the nature of their questions and advisers are each offering a blend of in person and virtual options.  These can be scheduled by visiting the following website which links to your Starfish account.  

Students who arrive later than halfway through their appointment slot, will be asked to reschedule.  

Those pursuing or exploring the psychology minor may not schedule appointments and are encouraged to work with an adviser via email or visit advising during our drop in hours Tuesdays 10am-11:45am and Wednesdays 1:15pm to 3:45pm.  Tuesday drop ins are a blend of in person and virtual, while Wednesdays are entirely virtual.  You can access them by using our remote kiosk which is only available during the advertised hours (URL coming soon) Appointments are meant for issues that you know will take longer than 10 minutes. Examples of topics that could be covered in an 20 to 30 appointment include:

If you have brief questions or concerns that can be addressed within 10 minutes or are a psychology minor we suggest you attend drop in advising.
