*Questions regarding the major, requirements, entry to the major, classes and their availability, and petitions can be answered by a staff advisor. Additionally, information about psychology graduate programs can also be obtained. Psychology Department Faculty members are a good resource for graduate and professional questions.
Faculty and T.A. offices and office hours are posted on our Web site.
Please check advising updates periodically for changes to class offerings or schedules.
A special note for transfer students:
You should speak to an advisor early in your academic career to ensure that you have completed all appropriate transfer courses. Transfer course work will be added to your records after completion of your first quarter at UC Davis.
