The Psychology advisors will have limited availability between December 21, 2020 - January 4, 2021. We encourage students to not delay scheduling appointments for Spring enrollment discussions.
From January 4-25, 2021, Psychology Advisors will only be available for appointments with their assigned Psychology major advisees. If you want to declare the major, please visit our website for information on how to declare online. psych.wisc.edu > undergraduate program > major > Declare the Major. We will not be holding major declaration appointments during this time.
All currently declared students and current UW-Madison undergraduate students interested in the Psychology major are welcome to schedule an appointment. We are meeting with students via Microsoft Teams, Google Hangout, or Phone appointments. Advising appointments can be made through Starfish. You can access Starfish from your MyUW dashboard. To add the Starfish app:
- Login to MyUW
- Search for Starfish
- Click Add to home for easy access
- Launch the app
Please click this link for instructions on how to use Starfish.
When scheduling, please select whether you want Microsoft Teams or Google Hangout or Phone appointment as your location.
Step-by-step instructions for how to access Microsoft Teams is here. Note: All UW students have access to Teams. MS Teams is available through a web browser (you will need to use Google Chrome), so you do not need to download an app or create an account. Your computer/device will need internet access as well as speakers, a microphone, and video camera. Your advisor will call you at your appointment time (Central Time), so please make sure you are logged into Microsoft Teams before the start time of your appointment.
For Phone appointments, leave your phone number in the appointment notes description. Your advisor will call you at that number at the start of your appointment time. We will call from a blocked number, so you may see “No Caller ID” or a similar message listed when we call.
For Google Hangouts, you will receive an email invitation to your @wisc.edu email address inviting you to ‘join the meeting’ at the start of your scheduled appointment time. Click here for Google Hangout Instructions.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any Psychology advising or appointment related questions.
