Spring 2017 Research and Field Experience Enrollment Procedures

Please take note of the following reminders regarding enrollment in independent study courses for Storrs students.

PSYC 3889 (Undergraduate Research)

For PSYC 3889, your instructor may either give you a permission number or have you enroll with the research form.

When using a permission number, be sure to select the correct section/instructor and number of credits, as shown below. Permission numbers can be used as soon as your enrollment appointment (i.e., “pick time”) starts until Add/Drop closes on Monday, January 30, 2016 at 10:30pm. Starting on Tuesday, January 31, enrollment for PSYC 3889 must be completed with the research form.

Paper copies of the research form can be obtained from the shelf of forms next to the Undergraduate Program Window. Be sure to fill out the form completely and obtain your Instructor’s signature. Bring the form to the Undergraduate Program Office for the Advisor’s and Associate Department Head’s signatures and final processing. Forms may be left in the inbox if the office is closed. If you need this course to achieve full-time student status (12 credits), forms are due by Friday, January 27, 2017 at 4:30pm. Otherwise, forms are due by Friday, February 10, 2017 at 4:30pm.

DO NOT use a permission number and a form.

PSYC 3899 (Independent Study) and PSYC 4197W (Senior Thesis in Psychology)

While permission numbers can be used for enrollment in PSYC 3899 and PSYC 4197W , using the research form is more common due to the desired addition of a title. The instructions are the same as enrolling in PSYC 3889 (Undergraduate Research).

PSYC 3880 (Field Experience)

Students may enroll in PSYC 3880 only with use of the forms found in the Field Experience Packet. Paper copies can be obtained on the shelf next to the Undergraduate Program Window. Be sure to fill out both forms completely and obtain your Field Supervisor and Faculty Sponsor’s/Instructor’s signature. Bring the form to the Undergraduate Program Office for the Advisor’s and Associate Department Head’s signature and final processing. Forms may be left in the box on the door if the office is closed. If you need this course to achieve full-time student status (12 credits), forms are due by Friday, January 27, 2017 at 4:30pm. Otherwise, forms are due by Friday, February 10, 2017 at 4:30pm.
