Many common questions are answered on our Frequently Asked Questions page.

Academic Advisors:


Students can find their assigned advisor(s) on MyMadison under the “Student Center.”  Contact information for Psychology Faculty can be found on our website.  Students are strongly encouraged to meet regularly with their advisors.
