Academic Advising

Academic Advising is available to all currently enrolled UH students. Prosepctive students that are not currently enrolled at the University of Houston who wish to find out information about the psychology undergradaute program and degree are advised to review the Psychology Department Handbook. Prospective transfer students who wish to find out information on how to transfer from their current institution to the University of Houston may contact a UH Transfer Advisor.

Transfer students who want to determine what courses will transfer to UH will have to wait until the day of their New Student Conference before an advisor can verify what has transfered to UH, regardless of when the student has been admitted. Academic advisors do not determine which courses from your previous institution(s) will be accpeted to UH.

 Mandatory New Student Conference

Students who have not attended a New Student Conference should not contact an advisor from the Psychology Department requesting an appointment for advising. Students will be advised on the day of their NSC.
