For help with personal academic plans & graduation checks

Peer Advisors can help if you have any questions about major requirements, want a graduation check to confirm your progress in the major and remaining requirements, need assistance creating a personal academic plan before you are eligible to declare, or need help choosing a major or Catalog. You can find the schedule & instructions to access Drop-in Advising with a Peer Advisor on the Undergraduate Advising page.

A note about choosing a Catalog for Psychology

If you have already declared the Psychology major and are unsure which Catalog you are following, you can find the term you declared in your UCSC portal (follow the instructions to find that information here). If you have not yet declared the Psychology major, you will choose your Catalog when petitioning to declare following these guidelines:

  • Students who entered UCSC as frosh in Fall 2020 or later terms must choose the 2020-21 Catalog when petitioning to declare the Psychology major.
  • Students who entered UCSC as frosh in Fall 2019 may choose the 2019 or later Catalogs when petitioning to declare the Psychology major.
  • Transfer students and students who entered UCSC as frosh before Fall 2019 may choose any Catalog listed below when petitioning to declare the Psychology major.
  • The only difference between the 2019 & 2020-21 Catalogs, is that PSYC 20 is required for students declared on the 2020-21 Catalog. PSYC 20 is recommended for students declared on earlier Catalogs, but not required.
