Advisement

Advisors guide your academic path and help you stay on track to graduate.

How do you get an advisor in the psychology department?

It depends on your degree program or status.

Psychology advising (undergraduate)

Pursuing or plan to pursue a psychology major or minor?

Contact the MCHHS Student Success and Advisement Center for academic and career advising.

Schedule an appointment to speak with an advisor about your program.

Gerontology advising

Once you declare your major in gerontology, you're assigned an advisor from our gerontology faculty.

Gerontology advisors include:

Meet for class registration

Until you complete 75 credit hours (undergraduate), you must meet with your advisor once a semester to register for classes.

Afterward, you should meet with your advisor once a semester until you graduate.

You can discuss your academic plans, registration for the upcoming semester and explore career and educational opportunities.

Graduate advising

Once you’re admitted into your graduate program, you’re assigned an advisor from the faculty members within your area.

Your advisor helps you with your class schedule, research projects and thesis.

Honors advising

If you’re a student in the Honors College, you do not follow the normal departmental advising process.

Instead, the Honors College assigns you an advisor.

Honors advisors understand both the requirements of the Honors College and the psychology or gerontology degree.

Typically, you remain with the selected honors advisor during your freshman and sophomore years. Then, you can switch to an advisor whose training closely matches your professional goals.
