Psychology Undergraduate Advising: Fresno State

The Psychology Department has a team of highly-trained advisors who offer a wide range of advising services. Advising includes review of DARS, general education requirements, psychology major requirements, and all other graduation requirements. We also advise on course selections, career paths, graduate school options, research opportunities, volunteer opportunities, student support, undergraduate programs, and psychology minor options.

If your question is not answered from this site, please visit the Psychology Office (Room 312, Science 2) or call 278-2691 to make an advising appointment. Keep in mind that all psychology majors MUST meet with an advisor at least once as part of graduation requirements. We strongly suggest, however, that you meet with a Psychology advisor at least once per academic year.

For University advising services, including deadlines, university forms, and all related information, see the Office of Advising Services.

Advising Requirement

All students MUST have at least one formal advising session with a Psychology advisor. If you do not see an advisor, you will receive an email from the University once you complete 60 units informing you that are in danger of being disallowed from registering for classes. Once you reach 75 total units, you will not be able to register for classes unless you have seen a Psychology advisor. It is in your best interest to see an advisor on a regular basis. If nothing else, the advisor can verify that you are satisfactorily making progress towards graduation. Please visit the Psychology Office or call 278-2691 to make an advising appointment.
