Advising Hours

Psychology Undergraduate Advising: How to Get Help

  • Students may email their questions, come to a drop-in session (in-person or zoom), or sign up for an appointment (in-person or zoom). See below for details on each option.
  • Psychology majors are assigned to a provisional advisor based on their last name. However, students may consult with any advisor.

        Dr. Patrick Cravalho (Last Names A-F)

        Dr. Megumi Hosoda (Last Names G-L)

        Dr. Mark Van Selst (Last Names M-R; special cases*)

        Dr. Cheryl Chancellor-Freeland (Last Names S-Z; pre-med)

        * an advisor may refer students in some circumstances to Dr. Van Selst.

  • All advisors cover advising in the majors and minors. Some advisors may also be especially knowledgeable in certain areas (see above).
  • All paperwork will be done electronically (Docusign)

Email: advising-psychology@sjsu.edu

  • Using advising-psychology@sjsu.edu will send your question to every member of the advising team. Your provisional advisor (assigned based on your last name) will answer your email.
  • If you wish to correspond with someone other than your default advisor, put their name in the subject line -- e.g., Subject: Dr. Cravalho - [topic of email].
  • Please be aware that emails will generally be answered during regular business hours (M - F, 9 - 5) and/or during advising times.  Periods of high demand may yield delays. If you have not received a reply in about 3-5 days, it is appropriate to send a polite follow-up inquiry.

Prior to your appointment please:

  • Review the BA, BS, or minor degree requirements that pertain to you
  • Review your MyProgress report -- there are some differences across different catalog years so this report is very important as this is what is used to assess whether or not you actually graduate (a good graphic overview of the current version of the BA is here)
