From Our Undergraduate Advisor

Hello everyone. I hope you are having a successful fall term! Please review this email before scheduling an appointment for Spring 2014 advising. Registration for Spring begins on November 1.

If you have completed 60 semester hours and your file has been transferred to the Psychology Department, we would meet for an advising appointment. 

To arrange an advising appointment with me, I will need to know your name, student ID number, campus, preferred meeting times, and phone number. You can email me at or call 847-619-4229.

I'm at the Chicago campus (GAGE, Room 400) on Mondays and Tuesdays, with appointment times from 10:30 a.m.-12:30 p.m., then 2:00-5:15 p.m.  I'm at Schaumburg campus on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays, with appointment times from 10:30 a.m.-12:30, then 2:00-5:15 p.m. 

It would be best to provide a range of times/days that you are able to meet because the appointment times that tend to fill quickest are times directly after classes end (such as 11:00, 12:15, 2:00, 4:30). Also, because my Chicago appointment times book quickly, if you have any flexibility to meet at Schaumburg, you would likely secure an earlier appointment. Finally, email advising is an option as well.

For Chicago campus students with 60-90 hours completed, you also have the option of scheduling an appointment with our part-time psychology advisor, Christina Tri, at She’s at the Chicago campus (GAGE, Room 400) on Wednesdays, 10:30 a.m.-1 p.m. and 1:30-5:00 p.m.; and Thursdays, 9:30-1:30 and 4:45-6:00 p.m.

Before scheduling your advising appointment, take some time to review your transcript and re-acquaint yourself with requirements for the Bachelor of Arts (B.A.) in psychology. To locate your Roosevelt transcript (that also would include a listing of courses you have transferred from other colleges) go to, select "Current Students" in the upper-left corner, and log into RU Access. Under "Registration & Other Student Services" select "Student Records" then "print unofficial transcript" to view your transcript.

You can now review the Spring 2014 class schedule by going to the main website at, selecting "Current Students" in the upper-left corner, then "Class Schedule" from the links in the left column. Do not look up courses through your RU Access or you will not see course prerequisites, notes, course status, special information, etc.

Finally, before our meeting, you are urged to resolve any registration holds you might have. To find out if you have any holds, log into your RU Access, select "Registration & Other Student Services," then "Student Records" and "View Holds." If you have a hold, you would contact the office that placed the hold to have it lifted so you can register. 

PLEASE NOTE: SPRING 2014 ACADEMIC CALENDAR. It's expected that the spring term will begin with the Monday (OR Monday/Wednesday OR Monday/Wednesday/Friday) classes having the first meeting on Friday, January 10th; then resuming regular meeting dates on Monday, January 13th. FYI: the Friday meeting date is the "make up" day for the Monday, January 20th Dr. Martin Luther King holiday, when the University is closed. The final Spring ‘14 academic calendar will be posted at the website for the Office of the Registrar (under “Important Dates”) during the fall term. You are urged to check that website for updates to the spring ’14 calendar.
