Academic Advising Process

Advisor Assignments

Beginning the freshman year, undergraduate psychology majors are advised by faculty within the Department of Psychology & Counseling in Mashburn Hall. Students will be assigned an academic advisor on a rotating basis and students should access their MyUCA account to see who they have been assigned to.

Scheduling Appointments

For appointments that do not occur during the Advanced Registration periods in November and April, simply contact your advisor by phone or e-mail to make an appointment.

For appointments during the Advanced Registration periods in November and April, schedule an appointment with your advisor by signing up for an advising session using the appointment schedule that is in the wall tray outside of your advisor's office door.

Preparation for your advising session for Advanced Registration

  • review your course checksheet to determine what course requirements remain
  • review the Schedule of Classes on the UCA website and develop a tentative schedule
  • bring your checksheet and tentative schedule to your advising session
