Advising Center - Tobin 501

Welcome to Advising!

Fall 2019 advising is closed.  Advising will resume in spring 2020.  

Advisors in the Advising Center are here to offer advice and answer questions for students pursuing a psychology major or minor or considering psychology. In addition to the Advising Center, you may choose to see a specialty advisor. The department has advisors for students completing honors, DDHS, neuroscience track, and other specializations or for students interested in pursuing a clinical path. 

Dr. Rahhal, Dr. Metevier, Dr. Astheimer, Dr. Cheries, and Ms. Pahl are available to answer your questions on a walk-in basis. We also have a wonderful group of student advisors who are happy to help! We don’t assign you a specific advisor; instead you are welcome to see any of the advisors on a walk-in basis. You may find the advising FAQ helpful to learn more about how advising works.

Peer Advisors are available to help you on a drop in basis!  Just come right into Tobin 501!
Monday-Thursday from 9:00-5:00 and Friday from 9:00-4:00.  
Please check below for specific advising hours for each of the Faculty/Staff Advisors. 

Because of federal privacy laws, advisors can only speak to students about academic records. If you would like for your parents or other individuals you designate to have access to your academic record, then you must complete the academic information release available at the Advising Center (Tobin 501). That form must be on file at the Advising Center before we can speak to anyone other than the student about academic information.

If you have an email inquiry, send your question to the Advising Center email and one of the advisors will respond shortly.
If your question is time sensitive, we encourage to drop into the advising center in Tobin 501 because email correspondence may take longer.
