Academic Advising


Undergraduate Psychology Advisors at Stony Brook University provide major advising to approximately 2,000 Psychology majors. Most advising includes semester scheduling, and may also include issues such as transfer evaluations, research opportunities, and degree clearance.

Planning your Program

Psychology majors should begin planning a program of study as early as possible in your undergraduate career. It is imperative that prior to the start of your final semester you should meet with an advisor to create and go over your  Major Requirement Checklist. Your major checklist shows all major courses you have taken, plan to take, and need to complete.

In general, we recommend that when Psychology majors need help with semester scheduling, they should first see their Major Advisors for core course requirements and then see an Academic Advisor in  Academic and Transfer Advising Services.

Students who wish to see a Psychology Advisor for help with semester scheduling should do so in plenty of time (i.e., about 1-2 months) before an upcoming registration period. This is particularly important for students in the first or second semester of their Senior Year. It is not unusual for Psychology majors to see an Advisor every semester, especially after their Sophomore Year.  Make an appointment with a Psychology Advisor via Navigate
