Drop-in Academic Advising

Drop-in hours are great for addressing quick (5-10 minute) questions or concerns related to psychology. We do not review student records during drop-ins; questions related to completing your psychology major requirements will be referred to an appointment, or you may request assistance by email to psyadvis@umn.edu.

Fall 2021 drop-in hours

Be sure to check Psych Scoop weekly for possible changes to drop-in hours.

Important Updates

The Psychology Undergraduate Advising Office will be mostly virtual until further notice. Appointments and drop-ins will be through Zoom. As always, we are available by email at psyadvis@umn.edu. While we do have some office presence, we do not necessarily answer the phone outside of core hours. Feel free to leave a voicemail and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
