Advising Hours

Drop-In Undergraduate Advising

Each graduate program has one faculty member designated as the program coordinator who is also the official program advisor. Graduate students who are writing a thesis also choose a thesis advisor from among the faculty.

Many Psychology Advisors will schedule advising appointments outside of their posted hours, please contact them directly. Be aware that summer and winter schedules availability can be quite variable (Dr. Van Selst will be advising through these times).
