Psychology Undergraduate Advising

How to Contact a Psych Undergraduate Advisor

Psychology Undergraduate Advisors are available to support current UCLA undergraduates both virtually and in-person. To request advising, submit your request via Message Center on myUCLA*. Please include your specific question(s) in your message.

Due to a high volume of inquiries, responses may take up to 7 business days (not including weekends and holidays). Please be patient and do not start multiple cases for the same issue in hopes of expediting a response.

Our office is located in 1530 Pritzker Hall. We are generally open from 9:30-11:30am and 1:30-3:30pm, Monday-Friday during the summer. Note that hours vary during the summer due to orientation sessions, staff trainings, events, and holidays.

*If you are not a UCLA student and/or do not have a UCLA logon ID, please submit your inquiry here.

Academic Advising Services

Please contact the Psychology Undergraduate Advising Office via Message Center if you’re looking for guidance with the following:

  • Major and pre-major questions and course planning (Psychology, Psychobiology, Cognitive Science)
  • Applied Developmental Psychology minor questions and course planning
  • Requests to declare a pre-major, major, minor, or specialization in the Psych dept
  • Petitions to substitute approved course equivalents for your major/minor in the Psych dept
  • Petitions to have new/alternate courses reviewed for substitutions
  • Enrollment questions/concerns about Psychology courses

Please meet with your College Academic counseling unit for questions regarding non-major requirements, long-term (i.e. 3-4 year) degree plans, and overall graduation checks. Students are advised to meet with an advisor at least once a year to review their degree progress. Students should also check their Degree Audit Report (DAR) regularly to determine which requirements they still need to satisfy.
