Email the Success Center ( to tell them of your intention to declare a minor.

They will contact you with information about the minor in psychology, your advisor, and the next steps. You do NOT need to meet with an intern to declare a minor but you can if you would like (simply schedule an appointment at the link below)!
Schedule An Orientation Session


Note: If you have a hold on your account because you need to declare a major/minor, that hold will not be removed until you have had your orientation session session, your psychology advisor has signed off on the declaration form, and the Registrar's Office has processed the formal paperwork.

Making a change to your Psychology Major?

If you want to switch your Psychology major emphasis, please contact your faculty advisor, and they will explain that process to you. If you wish to change from a Psychology minor to a Psychology major, you will need to meet with the Psychology Student Success Center, so use the button above to schedule an appointment. Let them know, though, that you already have a Psychology advisor and who that is so that you don’t need to change your advisor. If you simply wish to drop your Psychology major or minor, you should complete the appropriate e-form: It does not require a faculty signature.
