Have a question?  Contact an Advisor

If you have questions about:

  • Psychology course registration/drop
  • Psychology major/minor requirements
  • Adding or removing a psychology minor

Then please email, or contact your assigned advisor, Courtney Glass, Christina Minford, or Kurt Hoffman.

The Student Advising Resources page has a wealth of information that addresses many common advising questions and concerns among students.

Switching Into or Adding the Major

Please note that the Department of Psychology adheres to the 'senior rule,' which is stated in the Undergraduate Catalog as:

"Undergraduate students must be enrolled in their major(s) [and minor(s)] of choice prior to the beginning of their senior year, or by the time they have 30 semester hours to complete before their graduation." 

This means that if you have already earned 90 credits in a major that requires 120, you may not add or switch into our major.

If you would like to ADD psychology as a second major, please set up the appropriate explore appointment following the directions here.

Major CHANGES are now processed through HokieSpa, three times per year (see here for dates and times). Even though the major changes are approved online, you must still participate in a PSYC New Majors Canvas Site (first week of September and first week of February), to learn about the major and have an academic advisor assigned to you.
