Student Advising

The Psychology Department strongly recommends that all psychology and human development majors schedule regular advising appointments. Regular advising will ensure that you are meeting your major and general education requirements. Advising can also help you to graduate in a timely fashion. For example, advising can ensure that you don’t miss an opportunity to take a key class that may not be offered every quarter. Advising is important to your post-baccalaureate plans as well. Advisors will inform you of (master’s) programs that match your career interests and they will provide you with key guidance in preparing for, and applying to, these programs.

Advising is available through our advising coordinator, Dr. Janelle Gilbert, and the Department Chair, Dr. Bob Ricco, as well as the Peer Advising Center (PAC).

Dr. Ricco has regular advising hours on Tuesdays from 10:00am to 12:00pm and Wednesdays from 1:00pm to 2:00pm. To schedule advising with Dr. Ricco, please call (909)-537-5570 or sign-up in the Department Office – SB 425.

The Peer Advising Center (PAC) (SB-426)The Psychology Peer Advising Center (PAC) provides information regarding academics, course scheduling, navigating through the requirements in the major, university policies, and graduate school preparation to Psychology and Human development undergraduates.

The PAC provides advising on a walk-in basis only; no appointments are taken or necessary. Information regarding your status (classes needed to graduate, which courses satisfy requirements, etc.) cannot be given over the phone or email. Please make sure to bring a copy of your PAWS report to all advising sessions.
