How do I make an appointment?
All appointments for academic advising are scheduled through your myUH account. Click the red link below to log into AccessUH and then MyUH to schedule an appointment.
Schedule Advising Appointment
Appointments open every Friday at 8am for the following week.
**Appointments during the FALL 2017 semester will be limited!!!**
We currently only have two advisors for the entire department of 3,000 students. Please be patient as we try to assist as many students as possible.
If you do not have a hold on your account you should be able to use your previous advising degree checklist to determine what classes to enroll in for spring 2018.
Do not wait until the last minute to make your appointment, because you will most likely not find a slot open. We do not accept walk-ins. Appointments are scheduled for one week in advance.
Please make sure you have a working UH email address, as your appointment confirmation will be sent automatically to your assigned UH email address.
Available times will be in blue. If a time is closed or unavailable it will be in red or black. If no times are listed that means the advisor will not be seeing students that day.
Do NOT sign up for more than one appointment per week! Multiple appointments will be cancelled.
What information do I need to type in the "Appointment Reason" box?
You must enter all the information listed below or your appointment will be cancelled. The advisor needs this information in order to prepare for your advising session.
1. Are you working on a B.A. or B.S.?
2. Have you selected your minor? If yes, please indicate it.
3. What type of advising are you coming in for? GPA? Advising Hold? VA Paperowrk? etc.
I have a hold on my account and all the appointments are booked. What do I do?
Unfortunately, you will have to wait until the next batch of appointments open up for the following week. If you have an academic hold it is your responsibility to take care of your hold in a timely manner. Waiting to meet with an advisor when registration for next semester opens will result in you having to register late. NO EXCUSES!
Psychology is not my intended major. Can you just remove my hold?
No. If you do not intend to major in Psychology, but have not changed your major, you will be required to meet with your intended major advisor and then have that advisor contact the Psychology Department to let us know that you have been advised and can have your hold removed. This is one reason why it is important to change your major as soon as possible if you have no interest in pursuing a degree in Psychology.
What if I am late for my appointment?
If you are more than 10 minutes late you will be asked to reschedule. It is your responsibility to make sure you arrive to your appointment on time. You need to plan ahead for traffic, weather, parking, etc. Students that harass the advising assistant, advisors or staff when told to reschedule will be escorted from the premises by UHPD.
Appointments for distance education students
Distance Education students can email an advisor to request e-advising. E-advising, aka email advising, will consist of the advisor preparing all of the advising documents you would normally receive at a face-to-face appointment and then emailing the documents to the student. The student is required to read and review all of the documents. The student may then send questions to the advisor via email. Once the student's questions have been answered the student will be required to sign all of the documents and email or fax them back to the advisor. Please make sure you include your full name, student ID#, whether you are pursuing a B.A. or B.S. in Psychology, and what your intended minor is. You may also send along any questions you have prepared so that the advisor can provide the answers to your questions at the time they email you the advising documents. Students that meet distance education status are students that take courses in the following instructional formats: online, hybrid, weekend or evening.
Appointments for students on academic suspension (not probation)
Students that have been placed on academic suspension will not be able to make an appointment through their myUH account. These students will need to apply for readmission to UH and must wait until they are contacted by the College of Liberal Arts & Social Sciences (CLASS) with instructions on HOW and WHEN to schedule their readmission appointment. If the student needs to meet with an advisor before the readmission process to discuss possible courses that may be completed outside of UH while on suspension they should email an advisor.
Appointments for former students
Students that have not been enrolled at UH for more than 13 months will not be able to make an appointment through their myUH account as they are no longer active. The student must apply to UH as a former student and wait for their application status to be updated to "Admitted". A status of "Complete" is not the same as being admitted. Once the student's application status has changed to "Admitted" the student will be able to access the appointment scheduler through the myUH system and can set up their appointment to meet with an advisor.
