Finding an Advisor
Students with fewer than 60 earned credit hours: Students who have earned fewer than 60 credit hours MUST be advised in the Advisement Resources Career Center (ARC). To find the Psychology Advisors in the ARC, click here.
Students with 60 earned credit hours or more: Students who have earned 60 credit hours or more should come to the main Psychology Office (420 Rogers-Stout Hall) and ask to be assigned a Faculty Advisor. Students may NOT choose their Faculty Advisor. Faculty Advisors are assigned to students by the Department.
Preparing for an Advising Appointment
Advisors are trained to help students navigate ETSU and Departmental requirements, but each student should take responsibility for preparing to meet with an Advisor. An appointment should be made with an advisor by email or telephone at least one or two weeks before pre-registration begins. BEFORE going to an appointment with a Faculty Advisor, students should download the Pre-Advisement Check Sheet and the appropriate major check sheet for your particular degree type and concentration. Students should also take responsibility for knowing requirements which are printed in their ETSU Undergraduate Catalog, such as what intensive courses you will need. For advisement on Minors, students should contact the Minor Department in question for official information.
Students should keep up with their progress and make sure they take only the classes they need unless they choose to take extra classes. More Psychology courses than are actually required for a degree can be taken, and if a student has the time, money, and interest, we would encourage them to take all the Psychology courses they can.
