The Psychology Admissions Committee will review the application and notify the student by letter as to his/her acceptance or non-acceptance into the major.  If accepted, an academic advisor will be assigned with whom the student should meet regularly.  Students who have not yet been admitted to the psychology major should seek advising from the Tutoring and Academic Support Programs (McCullough Hall, 397-4461).
