Advising Resources

Spring 2020 advising will take place via Zoom appointments.

Please see below for information on:

Peer Advising

Peer advising occurs on a weekly basis during Fall and Spring semesters in the Department of Psychology (KA G49). The semester schedule is posted around the Department and these sessions are on a drop-in basis; no appointment is required. Peer advisers are students who have academically strong backgrounds and who are nearing degree completion. If you have general questions about the program, are interested in changing your major to Psychology, need help drafting your 4-year plan, or would like some insights from fellow Psychology majors, our peer advisers are available to help.

Faculty Advising

You will be assigned a faculty adviser when you enter the program. While faculty advisers can answer questions about the Psychology major and help verify your planned curriculum track, faculty advising is also a great place to discuss your career planning. There are many possible career paths for Psychology majors.  We strongly recommend that you see your faculty adviser (and visit Career Services) early during your time at USF to help you prepare for your future after USF.

If you want to discuss academic planning or your curriculum track with your faculty adviser, please come prepared with a draft of your 4-year plan. See a Peer Adviser if you need help with this.

You may contact your faculty adviser by email to set-up a Zoom appointment, or you may stop by during their posted office hours.

Visit your myUSF dashboard to find your faculty adviser:

  1. Select Student Self-Service
  2. Select “Student” tab
  3. Select “Registration”
  4. Select “Registration Status & Adviser Information”

Spring 2020 - Faculty Contact Information

Group Advising

Mandatory Group Advising typically occurs two to three weeks before the beginning of registration. The Department will send out an email to all Psychology students notifying them of the available Group Advising sessions. Students who have not completed all 5 foundational courses will be required to attend a session in its entirety in order to remove their Advising Hold. These sessions are meant to help students check if they are taking the classes they need to, both for the Core and the major, and for any other programs of study they want to accomplish while at USF, such as study abroad or minor programs.

IMPORTANT: After attending a live Zoom group advising session, you must complete and pass the group advising quiz on Canvas in order to get credit for attending the session. Completing the quiz allows us to identify who attended/watched the sessions and will allow us to lift registration holds. 

If you do not do a group advising session and complete the quiz, you will have an advising hold that will block your registration for Fall 2020.

CASA - Academic Success Coach

In addition to a faculty adviser in the major, all incoming students are assigned a success coach in CASA. The success coach will offer the student personalized support from orientation to graduation, while encouraging students to meet their goals, explore their options, and fulfill their potential.  They also work closely with faculty and staff to engage in academic interventions, ensuring our students have proper support in place to stay on track to complete their degree.

Please note, your Academic Success Coach cannot remove your advising hold nor can they sign your Add/Drop form as your adviser.
