Psychology undergraduate students are encouraged to meet with their assigned Academic Advisor each semester. Students and advisors work collaboratively, as partners, throughout the process of accomplishing students’ personal, academic and career goals. Once you enroll at CSU and attend Orientation, you are assigned a Psychology Academic Advisor.
Steps to Becoming a Psychology Undergraduate Student
CSU Students Who Wish to Change Their Major to Psychology
To change (or explore the option of changing) your major to Psychology, you must schedule a Psychology Major Information Session with an advisor: Session sign-up. Attending this session is required to make the switch. All questions will be answered during the session and the advisor will give you course recommendations and advising code. Advisors will not be available to meet with you prior to this session, but you are encouraged to review Psychology requirements here ahead of time: CSU Catalog.
