The purpose of advising is to help students achieve their academic and career goals. It is university policy that students meet with an advisor prior to registering for classes. Peer and faculty advisors are available to help with this endeavor. First-year and sophomore students are encouraged to meet with a peer advisor (Student Health Center – Room 211) prior to registration. Junior and senior students should meet with their faculty advisor.
Contact the department administrative coordinator if you need a faculty advisor or want to change advisors.
Peer advisors are high-performing junior and senior psychology majors who have received extensive training on the university graduation requirements. First-year and sophomore students are encouraged to see a peer advisor in the Student Health Center (Room 211) during advising. Students can also meet with a faculty advisor.
Advisors can assist you with:
- reviewing transcripts

- study skills
- starting a career plan
- preparing to apply to graduate school

Before you go see an advisor be sure to review your degree audit, found on your Vandal Web Account, to help you understand the courses needed to graduate. For additional questions about advising and registration, please visit the Office of the Registrar.
