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.  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, you may find that you have not received credit for a psychology course you completed.  You will need to make a substitution request.
