What will happen at my major declaration appointment?

At your 40-minute major declaration appointment, we will discuss your Educational Planning Questionnaire, review the requirements for the psychology BA or BS (and your BS planning sheet, if applicable), discuss the many opportunities and resources available to you through psychology undergraduate advising, and electronically declare your major. 

How often should I come back to meet with advising after I declare?

You are encouraged to make an appointment at least once per year. In addition, when you have completed between 75–90 credits, you are invited to set up a junior/senior check-in appointment. You may also visit our designated drop-in hours for quick questions (5–10 minutes per student).
