- Frequently Asked Questions About Academic Advising and Course Registration
Academic advising for all psychology majors is provided by full-time faculty members within the department. All incoming psychology majors and minors are assigned a faculty adviser by the Department Secretary.
Typically, incoming students who declare psychology as their major subsequently receive a letter from the Psychology Department Chairperson, which provides them enrollment information and the name of their designated academic advisers. If you have not received such a letter, please contact the Psychology Program at 217 206-6696, or by e-mail Psy@uis.edu.
All psychology majors are required to attend a Small Group Orientation Session at the beginning of their first semester as a psychology major. Individual academic advising primarily involves assisting students with concentration selection and curriculum planning, monitoring student progress, and providing information regarding continuing education and/or career options related to the major.
Although academic advisers assist students with academic planning, students are expected to review the University catalog and student handbooks, and are ultimately responsible for meeting University and Departmental requirements for graduation.
