All psychology majors with more than 24 semester hours of college course work are advised within the department. Students can find a number of resource materials for course and career planning in the information rack and on the bulletin board outside E16 SSH.
If you are a declared Psychology major, please use the Online Scheduler to make an appointment. You will need to log in to MyUI using your HawkID and password. A link to the scheduler is available on the Student Information tab.
Walk-in Advising Hours
No appointment necessary. Stop in with quick questions about requirements, to receive a signature on add/drop forms, or if you have brief inquiries about other topics. Students will be seen on a first-come, first-served basis. If you think your question will take more than five minutes, please schedule an appointment with either Deb or * so the advisor can give you her attention without the distraction of other students popping in with questions.
* Please note that these hours may be cancelled occasionally when scheduling conflicts arise.
Monday: 3:00 – 4:00
Tuesday: 3:00 - 4:30
Thursday: 10:00 - 11:00
Scheduling an Advising Appointment
Schedule an appointment if you have detailed questions about such things as: your degree audit and requirements, study abroad, careers or graduate school opportunities, or you need to complete financial aid (SAP) forms. Appointments cannot be scheduled during Walk-in Hours. While students are officially assigned to one advisor they can schedule an appointment with either advisor
If you are a declared Psychology major, please use the Online Scheduler. You will need to log in using your HawkID and password. Each appointment is 30 minutes.
If you are not a declared Psychology major or have trouble scheduling an appointment online, please call the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences office at 319-335-2406.
Psychology majors who are advised by the Department of Psychological and Brain Sciences and have Psychology as their first declared major are automatically cleared to register. Advising for course selection is optional.
For students who would like help selecting courses for the upcoming semester, advisors are available to meet with students a few weeks prior to the beginning of the early registration period (November and April). These short individual meetings are by appointment only and typically only include discussion of classes for the next session. Discussion of long-term issues should be deferred until Early Registration ends. The Psychology advisors will send an instructional email to all majors several weeks before Early Registration begins.
Add/Drop Forms: All Add/Drop forms require an advisor signature. Students can see either advisor during walk-in office hours to have forms signed. Advisors have blank forms if needed. The main office (E11 Seashore Hall) can sign Add/Drop forms for the advisors as well.
Although students are encouraged to seek advice and assistance in planning their academic programs from advisors and faculty, formal responsibility for meeting University and departmental requirements rests with the student.
