Schedule an Appointment

Advising appointments can be made through the WiscCal Scheduling Assistant. All major declarations require an appointment. You must have a NetID to make an appointment. 

Please click this link for instructions on how to use Scheduling Assistant. We have three advisors in the Psychology Department; all currently declared students should try to schedule an appointment with their assigned advisor.

Appointments may be made up to two weeks in advance, with at least 24 hours advanced notice. Students are allowed only one appointment in a two week period. Please note that students are limited to one 25-minute appointment within a two-week interval. Students who are more than 10 minutes late for an appointment will be required to reschedule.

If you need to cancel an appointment, you must do so through Scheduling Assistant. For students who have migrated to Office365 and using the Outlook Web App- be sure to send us a response if you decline your appointment. 

Please also note that there is a high demand for advising in the Psychology Department. It is common for appointments to be filled quickly. Requests for appointments cannot be made via email. If you have more immediate advising needs, please refer to the weekly Drop-in hours. All students, regardless of their assigned advisor, may attend drop-in advising.

Are you a prospective student?

We are happy to meet with prospective UW-Madison students to discuss the psychology major during non-peak advising. Peak advising occurs during the first three weeks of each semester and during registration time (during the months of March/April and October/November). We require a minimum of two weeks advanced notice to schedule an appointment. You may contact us via email:
