Kelsey Keefe

Academic Advisor

Academic advisor for Storrs psychological sciences major (BS degree) and psychological sciences minor

Advising Appointments

Schedule a 30 minute appointment on SANDBOX. If you cannot keep your appointment, please cancel it so another student can take that spot.

Late Arrival and Cancellation Policy

In order to make the best use of time, I have the following expectations:

  • If you are more than 10 minutes late to your appointment (without letting me know), your time may be given to someone else.
  • If you cancel your appointment the same day or do not show up to your appointment, you will be given a “no-show.” After three “no-shows,” you will only be able to meet with our office during walk-in hours.

In return, I try my best to be on time. In the rare event that I need to cancel our appointment (I get sick too!), I will give you as much notice and reschedule your appointment as soon as possible.

Walk-In Hours

Walk-in hours are for quick questions (less than 5-10 minutes); students needing additional time should schedule an appointment. As students are met with on a first-come, first-served basis, students may wait 15 minutes to 1 hour depending on advisor availability. Students can expect longer wait times during peak registration times (typically late October and late March). Please note that hours are subject to change without notice based on office needs. The most up-to-date information will be posted on my office door.
