Advising

Tykeson College and Career Advising is the academic and career advising destination for all students who:

  • Have not yet declared a major, referred to as exploring students
  • Are declared majors and minors in the College of Arts and Sciences
  • Are considering another major or exploring other majors
  • Want to explore career options and opportunities

Students with declared majors and minors in the College of Arts and Sciences should also continue to seek advice from faculty when they are looking for specific information about their chosen major or detailed information about their major department and its curricular and co-curricular offerings.

Advising Within Psychology — PLEASE NOTE:  Until further notice, advisors will be available by appointment only.  Students, please reach out by emailing psyugadvisors@uoregon.edu or psypeers@uoregon.edu.  An advisor will get back to you as soon as possible.  When emailing psychology advising, use your UO email account and include your ID number with your question. 

All of our advisors are trained to help you to tailor your class schedule to your needs.  We can help you with planning all of your requirements — university and major requirements.  Please contact us if you are confused, needing help, or just want to chat about your options for a successful experience at the University.  You are ultimately responsible for understanding your degree audit and finishing all requirements successfully.

Add Psychology Major

In order to add psychology as a major, students must attend an advising workshop.  Students interested in declaring psychology as a major should stop by the peer advising office (229 STB) to sign up for a new major orientation workshop.  During these workshops, advisors will help students become familiar with the psychology curriculum, develop academic plans keeping graduation timelines in mind, become aware of resources in the department, and succeed as a psychology major.

In addition, students will fill out forms to declare/add psychology as a major.  Once your form is processed by our department, it will take approximately three weeks for the registrar’s office to process the request and update student information in DuckWeb.

Add Psychology Minor

Students interested in adding psychology as a minor, or dropping the major/minor, should meet with one of our advisors to make an academic plan and fill out a request form.  Once your form is processed by our department, it will take approximately three weeks for the registrar’s office to process the request and update student information in DuckWeb.

When DuckWeb shows psychology as your major or minor, you should be able to register for restricted courses if you have the prerequisites.  If you have any questions regarding changing your major or minor to psychology or have problems registering for psychology courses, email Cindy Salmon.

Please note:  Change of major/minor forms take approximately 3 weeks to process.  Students wishing to declare psychology as a major/minor should meet with a psychology advisor to make an appropriate academic plan for upcoming terms.
