Professional and faculty advising requires an appointment.
- Freshmen and sophomores can meet with a professional advisor in the Center for Advising and Student Success . Information for scheduling an appointment is on their website.
- Faculty advising for junior and senior psychology students is conducted by psychology department faculty who are designated advisors. You are assigned one of these advisors according to the first letter of your last name: A-F with Dr. Matthew Genuchi, G-M with Dr. Cindy McCrea, N-Sk with Dr. Eric Landrum, and Sl-Z with Dr. Cynthia Campbell.
You can schedule an appointment with an advisor through the above contact points. All advising for our Juniors and Seniors occurs via Zoom for Summer 2020 and Fall 2020 semesters. Psychology Advising is here to assist you!
Scheduled advising appointments are 30 minutes and are encouraged for students who have an academic hold, need career/grad school planning, or have questions about academic success strategies or how to get involved at Boise State and in the department. Students can also see an advisor to learn how to transfer to Boise State’s psychology degree program; inquire about research opportunities, and find out about internships. It is often helpful to bring paper copies of your documentation with you to these appointments (e.g., unofficial copy of transcripts, transfer evaluation report, academic progress report, etc.).

Note to all students: If you find yourself in a situation here at Boise State where you are getting bounced around from University office to office, or your feel like no one is really listening to you, or you are getting the run-around, we want you to tell us. You should contact the Department Chair Dr. Eric Landrum at firstname.lastname@example.org or contact the Department Associate Chair Dr. Cynthia Campbell at email@example.com.
