Advising

Welcome to Psychology Undergraduate Advising!

For in-person advising, please visit us during our normal advising hours. A majority of student advising is done on a walk-in basis. Appointments may be made for students with extenuating circumstances. Send Psychology Advising a message via the Virtual Advising Center to inquire about making an appointment with an advisor.

Advising Hours:

  • Monday - Thursday: 9:00-11:00 am & 1:00-3:00 pm (Closed Fridays)

The Virtual Advising Center:

  • VAC is available to current students 24 hours a day.
  • Choose Psychology from the drop-down menu.
  • An advisor will respond to you within 1-3 business days.
  • We do not answer VAC messages on weekends, evenings, or University holidays.

Prospective students:

  • Please e-mail us at psycadvising@ucsd.edu. Please note, the Psychology Department only advises through the VAC. We will not answer questions from current students via e-mail.

Reschedule exam requests (for approved students):

  • Please have your instructor send a request to reservations-psyc@ucsd.edu that includes your name, PID, course, reason for the reschedule request, exam perimeters (time limit, due by date, approved materials, etc.) and attach any relevant documentation.
  • You will receive a response within 2-3 business days.
  • If you have OSD accommodations, please follow the process as outlined on our website.
