Psychological and Brain Sciences Undergraduate Advising Center

Tobin Hall Rm 501

The psychological and brain science advising center is here to offer advice and answer questions for students pursuing a psychology major or minor or considering psychology.  Prof. Rahhal, Prof. Metevier, 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!  You may find the advising FAQ helpful to learn about how advising works.  We don't assign you a specific advisor; instead you are welcome to see any of the advisors on a walk-in basis.  Click here to meet your 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 office (Tobin 501).  That form must be on file at the advising office before we can speak to anyone other than the student about academic information.


 

We have added a new advising email address!  If you have an email inquiry, send your question to us and Prof. Rahhal, Prof. Metevier, or Ms. Pahl will respond.    

Advising Center Walk-in Office Hours:  

Undergraduate peer advisors are available for walk-in advice: Monday - Thursday 9:00 - 5:00 and Fridays 9:00 - 3:00.  You may always ask to see a faculty/staff advisor whose office hours are listed below.
