Academic Advisor Selection Process

Students may request an academic advisor in the Psychology Department based upon faculty availability and a matching of interests. To request an academic advisor in the Psychology Department, complete the following steps:

  1. Approach a faculty member and ask if they would be willing to serve as your academic advisor. Students are encouraged to meet with their potential advisors in person to better facilitate the academic advising process.
  2. If a faculty member is available and agrees to be your advisor, complete the Advisor Change Request Form available on the Academic Advising website. The form can be found under the Online Forms tab on the left-hand side of the webpage.
  3. Upon submission, the form will be automatically sent to the potential advisor for consideration. You will be notified by email of the advisor's decision.

Below is a list of faculty members that are currently available to accept new advisors:
