Send a Checklist to the Undergraduate Curriculum Assistant, in 406 Schermerhorn Hall prior to the start of your final semester.
Use a Major Requirement Checklist to plan your program for the year ahead and
to monitor your progress toward completion of your major or concentration. Always
bring a completed Checklist when you meet with your faculty
advisor. To give you an idea what a completed form might look like, a sample
is provided below.
The table above provides links to Checklists that you may fill out online and
then submit electronically. When you click on the Submit button, you'll receive
a web acknowledgement showing all the information you entered. In addition,
the same information that is sent to UCA in the Psychology Dept. Office will be sent to your email address.
If you would like to send a copy to your advisor as well, include your advisor's
email address, separated by a comma, after your own on the form.
Web-submittable checklists may also be printed. Print a copy for yourself and/or your advisor after you've entered all information.
