Appointments & Walk-In Hours

Summer 2017

Summer availability is very limited due to New Student Orientation, conferences, training, and time off. If you need to meet or talk please email sarah.scheidel@uconn.edu with a request. For reference, here is a Summer 2017 Calendar. Any day highlighted means Sarah will not be available.


Either academic advisor in the Undergraduate Program Office may sign paperwork requiring your psychological sciences advisor’s or department head’s signature. Paperwork can be submitted at any time in person (box outside windows) or via email to undergradpsych@uconn.edu. You will receive an email with an attached, signed copy when your paperwork is processed, which is usually within one week. (If you need to self-submit your signed paperwork to another office, you will be emailed when it is signed and ready to be picked up.) If you would like to submit your paperwork directly to an advisor, please arrange to visit during walk-in hours.
