We recommend you see an academic adviser before each registration period and at other times during the year, as needed.
You may see any of the three faculty academic advisers. You also may change your adviser at any time.
Advisers are available during their office hours to discuss course offerings, degree requirements, and to assist you in planning your academic and career goals.
- Find answers to frequently asked questions.
- Review required advising deadlines.
- Learn how to read your APR, or Academic Progress Report (PDF)
- Read recommendations for career and graduate school planning.
Regular advising appointments are available through SONA during the Autumn, Winter and Spring Quarters. These are the best times to be assured that you can meet with a psychology adviser. Advising times are posted to SONA 1-2 weeks before the quarter begins.
If you have an urgent advising question during finals week, or the breaks between these quarters, please email one of the faculty advisers below. We should be able to answer any time-sensitive questions over email, and if the matter cannot wait until the next quarter, we can try to make a special appointment with you.
See instructions for making an advising appointment online.
If you're registered with our online research system (SONA), make an advising appointment.
Please do not contact multiple advisers for the same reason. We discuss many of your questions as a group, so there is no need to write all of us with the same question, either all at once or separately! Thank you.
