Academic Advising, B.A. in Psychology
Academic advising gives you the specific tools you need to be as academically successful as possible and to help you navigate your journey toward graduation and your future career. All new students are required to meet with their adviser prior to registering for classes.
During your initial advising session, your adviser will:
- discuss the program requirements for the major
- address any questions or concerns you may have regarding the program
- walk you through the registration process.
After your advising session, you are responsible for:
- registering on your own
- reviewing and comprehending your program requirements
- checking your UB email and the academic calendar for important dates and deadlines
- reaching out to your adviser regarding any serious problems affecting your academic progress
- preparing a tentative class schedule and specific questions to ask adviser in advance to ensure a smooth advising appointment.
Your adviser can provide guidance regarding scheduling, program requirements, and academic policies. The Office of Records and Registration and your adviser will send you an email reminder every semester when upcoming registration dates are made public. You should schedule an appointment with your adviser as soon as the schedule of classes is published.
NOTE: Meeting with your Academic Program Adviser each semester is recommended, but not required.
