How to get your schedules signed and office hours

If you are ready to get your course schedule signed, seal your course schedule and download a PDF file from SIS. Name the file “YourLastName.YourFirstName.Spring2020.pdf”. (If you do not make the change in the file name, your file will be overridden by another student’s file with the same file name.) E-mail the PDF file to the DUS (if you’re in the standard major) or the NS track advisor (if you’re in the NS track). We will review it, and if we approve it, we’ll e-mail you back and Cc our registrar, Andrea Chamba. Then, you can go to her office during her office hours (which is essentially all day long) to get your schedule signed.

Dear Psychology Majors,

Just a note that PSYC 200: Statistics will be offered this spring semester (2020) at MW 1-2:15pm.

Deadlines for Spring 2020

If you are writing a senior essay during Spring 2020 (i.e., the so-called “substantial paper” with more than 5,000 words), the deadline is April 24 (Fri) 4:30pm for students who are not seeking Distinction. For students who are seeking distinction, it is due April 17 (Fri) 4:30pm (it is sooner because we need to assign it to a second reader).
