Psychology: About your faculty advisor


Your faculty advisor can be (and should be) one of the most important people you work with during your college career. We recommend that students meet with their advisor prior to scheduling each semester. At a minimum students should meet with their advisors once a year.

While this website is designed to give students a great deal of advising information, it cannot replace the wisdom and experience of your advisor. Also, this website gives general information whereas your advisor can speak to your unique concerns.

All psychology majors are assigned to a faculty advisor. If you need to get in touch with your advisor you can call, send e-mail, stop by during office hours (posted on their office door), or make an appointment.

Occasionally a student will change advisors. Most often this occurs because students needs advisors with a specialty in their interest area. For example, if a student begins to focus on school psychology as a career choice it is good to have an advisor with some expertise in that area. If, for any reason, you want to change advisors you should contact the Department Secretary with the name of the faculty member you choose as your new advisor.
