Are you a UW student interested in the Psychology major?

Please also note that there is a high demand for advising in the Psychology Department. Due to limited staffing, during the Fall 2018 semester, only declared students may schedule appointments with the Psychology Advisors. If you are interested in becoming a Psychology major or if you have more immediate advising needs, please refer to the weekly Drop-in hours.
