Advising Options

CSS advising is housed within the Department of Psychology. Current students may use the "Ask a Question" feature within the Virtual Advising Center (VAC) to submit quick questions to the Psychology advisors. Our goal is to respond to VAC messages within 3-4 business days; however, during busy times (registration, etc.) responses may take longer. Advisor's responses can be found in the student's "Contact Record" area of their VAC. 

Drop-In Advising (For Current Students): 

Advising is currently being handled in-person and via Zoom. 15 min. drop-in advising sessions are available to students in real-time to discuss basic inquiries related to the CSS minor requirements, the degree audit, current or upcoming quarter planning, etc. 

  • In-person: the Psychology Advising Office is located at 1533 Mandler Hall.
  • Remote: sign in to your Virtual Advising Center (VAC), select "Meet with Advisor," scroll to "Psychology Dept." and you will be placed in the psychology advisors' queue for a Zoom meeting.
