Psychology Advising Center

Advising Appointments

The Psychology Advising Center is open for virtual advising appointments this semester! All appointments will be conducted using the university’s Zoom platform.  Current students should log in to MyUTK and click on the Vol Academic Connect link there to schedule.  Additional appointment times are added on Tuesday mornings, so check then for the greatest availability.

If you have general questions or need assistance that cannot wait until our next available appointment, you can also reach us at psychadvising@utk.edu.

The Psychology Advising Center (The PAC) is located in 307 Austin Peay. This office specializes in curriculum advising and academic planning for psychology and neuroscience students. PAC advisors also answer questions and provide referrals for students interested in exploring other majors, minors, and pre-professional programs across the university. We welcome the opportunity to assist you in clarifying your academic and career goals and developing a plan for success!

Appointments

Registration advising:  All students are required to meet with an advisor prior to registering for classes during their first 30 hours at UT.  More advanced students are required to meet with an advisor on a year, either in fall or spring, depending on their student ID number.  If you do not know if you are required to meet with an advisor this semester, check your registration status in MyUTK.

Each semester, the students who are required to meet with an advisor are emailed a personalized link to schedule their registration advising appointment.   This link allows our registration students to have priority access to upcoming advising appointments.  If you have not received this link within two weeks of your registration start date and you have an advising hold in MyUTK, please email psychadvising@utk.edu to request a link.

Non-registration appointments:  Students who need to be seen for matters other than registration can schedule appointments by accessing Vol Academic Connect via MyUTK

Drop-in Advising

Weekly PAC drop-ins have been suspended at this time.  However, the PAC continues to offer a more limited number of virtual drop-in events on keys dates throughout the semester, including on the add/drop deadline.  These events are advertised via email to our advisees. Please reach out to your advisor or psychadvising@utk.edu for more information about upcoming drop-in opportunities. 

Email

Students who need urgent attention or who have quick questions that do not require a full appointment are encouraged to reach out to their advisor via their campus email address.  We also maintain a departmental email address for general inquiries: psychadvising@utk.edu.  Emails are typically returned within 24-48 business hours.
