Academic Advising

First-Year Advising

All Psychology, Animal Behavior, and Neuroscience majors will meet with Erin Krummell for academic advising during the freshman year. Academic advising gives you the opportunity to gain a greater understanding of:

  • Major specific and core required courses
  • Course selection, registration, and academic plans
  • Minors or secondary majors
  • Building internships and study abroad into your academic plan
  • On campus resources available at UNE

In addition, all freshmen will also be assigned a faculty member from the Psychology Department to serve as a major mentor.  These assignments will be made just prior to the start of the freshman year.  Your faculty mentor will meet with you to talk about career goals, opportunities you may wish to consider in addition to your coursework (e.g., internships, research experiences, study abroad, clubs and honors societies), graduate school options, and your general transition to UNE.

You are encouraged to schedule appointments to meet with both your academic advisor and your faculty mentor on a regular basis and not just in the weeks preceding the registration process.

Academic Advisors and Mentors for Sophomores, Juniors, and Seniors

After the conclusion of your first year, your faculty mentor will become your mentor and academic advisor for the remainder of your undergraduate studies. As during your first year on campus, you are encouraged to meet frequently with your advisor/mentor to discuss your degree progress as well as other opportunities and life planning. 

Mandatory Pre-Registration Advising Meetings*

All students in the Psychology department are required to attend mandatory Pre-Registration Advising appointment with their academic advisor in the fall and spring (this is Erin Krummell during the freshman year and the assigned faculty mentor/advisor in subsequent years). You will be given an alternate pin number to use at the time of registration and will receive an email with details on how to sign up for these meetings. Until you attend a Mandatory Advising Meeting, you will not have permission to register for classes.

Mandatory Pre-Registration Advising Meetings must be completed during mid-October through mid-November of your fall semester and mid-March through mid-April of your spring semester. 

*A drop in appointment or an appointment with a peer advisor will NOT complete this requirement.
