Advising Within Psychology

In order to reduce in-person contact due to COVID-19, all Psychology advising services are offered remotely via Zoom or Teams for drop-in advising.  Thank you for your understanding and patience.

  • Students, for advising questions, please reach out by emailing psyugadvisors@uoregon.edu.  An advisor will get back to you as soon as possible.

    • To add psychology as your major or minor, please email psypeers@uoregon.edu.  One of our advising team will get back to you with further instructions.
    • When emailing psychology advising, use your UO email account and include your ID number with your question.
    • When requesting an appointment, please send some times that work for you that week.

Add Psychology Major

In order to add psychology as a major, students must go through onboarding and academic planning with psychology advisors.  Students interested in declaring psychology as a major should email psypeers@uoregon.edu to set up a new major orientation.  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 email psypeers@uoregon.edu to set up a new minor orientation.  Advisors will work with you on an academic plan that meets your goals for the minor.  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.
