Drop-In Advising

Drop-in advising hours are great for addressing quick (5-10 minute) questions or concerns related to psychology. If you come with more detailed questions (e.g. career planning, graduate school, major declarations, course planning, finding work/internships or research positions), you will be asked to schedule an appointment.

Introducing PsyCareer Drop-in Hours! Laura Heilman from CLA Career Services will be available to meet with students for drop-in career, internship, and graduate school advising during spring semester Thursdays from 1:30-3:30pm.

**Due to the high student demand the first two weeks of the term, we will have an advisor available from on drop-ins from 8:00am to 4:30pm Monday-Friday for the first two weeks of the term. Drop-ins are a great time to have research contracts signed, and ask 5 to 10 minute questions. Our normal drop-in hours will take effect Tuesday, February 2nd.

Undergraduate Research Contract Signatures

If you need a Psychology Advisor to review and sign a paper copy of the Undergraduate Research Contract, you do not need to schedule a full advising appointment. Simply stop by during drop-in hours with your completed Research Contract Form and a Psychology Advisor will review your contract and provide you with instructions to register. If you can't make it during drop-in hours, please email to set up a time to come in so that we can ensure an advisor will be available.

Summer - There are no drop-in hours in the summer, therefore, you must email to set up a time to come in for an advisor to sign your contract.

***Please check the Psych Scoop each week for possible changes to availability.
