Psychology Undergraduate Advising Office

Hello Psychology Dept Students,

We hope you are all doing well during this difficult time. In this period, as UCLA transitions to online learning and limits the number of people on campus, our office in 2812 LSB is now closed for in person advising. We will be instead conducting remote advising services. We strongly recommend communicating with our office via email initially to address student advising concerns so that we may ensure proper next steps. Our undergraduate advising email address is undergraduate@psych.ucla.edu. Please include your name and UID in all emails.

If you have any enrollment questions regarding Psychology courses, please keep in mind that the department will still be enforcing major and class standing enrollment restrictions. If a class and waitlist are full, you may continue to monitor the course through MyUCLA. As we have done in the past, the Psychology Department does NOT issue any PTE numbers for our courses.

We thank you for your patience and understanding during this time of transition. Please see below for clarification on how to reach various offices for student advising concerns. If you ever have any questions about which campus resource to reach out to, do not hesitate to email our office.
