Please make sure you touch base with an advisor at least one time this semester. Your first appointment can be held with a Peer advisor (only available during the regular school year). The peer advisors can tell you: if you are taking the correct Psychology courses, determine if the Psychology courses you have taken will fulfill the requirements for the Psychology degree, and make substitution requests*.

*After reviewing your academic requirements page, if you find that you have not received credit for a course you completed you will need to let an advisor know, so that we can make a substitution request for you. The most common substitution requests are for MAT 131/132 and lower division courses that are transferred from other colleges (e.g., PSY 101, 230, 235, 240).
