Loyola University Chicago

Department of Psychology

Advising

Every student is assigned to a first and second year advisor when they enroll at Loyola. This person can help the student with planning their course schedule, registration, selecting a major, and other academic and non-academic concerns. If the student enrolls in a major under the College of Arts and Sciences they are then assigned to a CAS advisor for help during their 3rd and subsequent years until they graduate. This advisor can help with many of the same things as the first and second year advisor but also has more specialized information available about specific majors.  They will also help the student to ensure that they will meet all of the graduation requirements from the university, college, and their major(s) and minor(s).
 
In addition, if the student declares a psychology major they can request a Psychology Faculty Advisor. This faculty member will meet with you, go over course requirements, departmental activities, special courses, career opportunities, etc., and answer any questions that you might have. Please know that it is your responsibility to contact your advisor who will work with you on an "as needed" basis for the rest of your stay at Loyola. 
 
You can always see who your advisors are by checking Locus.
 

Psychology Faculty Advisors 

All students must physically go to the psychology department to be assigned to a psychology faculty advisor. If you have forgotten your advisor's name check your Locus page to see who it is. If you do not see your Student ID number on the Advisor List OR you have never requested an advisor, please go to the psychology department located on the second floor of Coffey Hall. Ask a department staff member for a psychology advisor and you will be provided with a faculty name and contact information.
