Important Things to Keep in Mind About Advisement

  • You need 120 hours to graduate, 39 of which need to be above the 3000 level
  • You need to declare Psychology as your major by emailing graduation@westga.edu        
  • The very latest you can declare Psychology your major is the semester prior to the semester you graduate
  • You cannot use the same course to count in more than one category
  • Meet regularly with your advisor, and talk about your career rather than just the courses you need for next semester
  • If you are interested in Graduate School or internships, talk to your advisor early rather than waiting until your senior year
  • You must apply for graduation by logging on to MyUWG, clicking on the Banweb tab, selecting the "Student Services & Financial Aid" link, and then, clicking on the "Graduation Application" option
