Advising appointments can be made through Starfish. You can access Starfish from your MyUW dashboard. Here are instructions on how to use Starfish.
Current UW-Madison students can schedule a Psychology Advising Appointment. When scheduling, please select whether you want Microsoft Teams or Google Meet or Phone appointment or In-person as your location.
For In-person meetings, you will select the room location of your advisor in 438 Brogden Psychology Building. When you arrive for your appointment, please enter the waiting area in room 438F – it is the first door to your left when entering the 438 suite. Your advisor will come greet you at the start of your appointment time.
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 Google Meet, 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 Meet Instructions.
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.
Please contact email@example.com with any Psychology advising or appointment related questions.
Appointments must be made with at least 24 hours advanced notice. Students are allowed one 30-min appointment in a two-week period. If you cannot be reached 5-10 minutes after the start of your appointment time, you will be considered a ‘no show’ and required to reschedule.
If you need to CANCEL an appointment, you must do so through Starfish.
