There are many opportunities for undergraduate psychology majors to receive advising. All advising is done on a drop-in basis, so no appointment is needed to see an advisor. Please email one advisor using your UO email account and include your ID number with your question. Drop-in office hours are for weeks 1-10 only and by appointment only during finals week.
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 visit any one of 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.
During the academic year, Psychology’s peer advisors are available most days from about 10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. The main peer advising office is located in 229 Straub. They provide assistance for a variety of problems, from help with figuring out your schedule, to how to sign up for a practicum, to advice on the GRE and getting into graduate school. Peers can be contacted by calling 541-346-4936 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org. The peer advisors are not available during finals week, term breaks, and summer session.

Change of Major / Minor
In order to add psychology as a major or minor, students must first meet with an advisor. Our advisors have change of major/minor forms available for you to fill out. Once your form is processed by our department, you will receive a confirmation email. When your transcripts in DuckWeb are updated to show 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. Change of major/minor forms will not be processed during the first week of the registration period of each term. For spring 2018 registration, this policy will be in effect February 26 through March 5, 2018.
