filing an application at the cashier's office, UH-180. In a few months,
you will receive a white and a gold copy of paperwork in the mail. Once
you receive these forms, sign up for a grad. check appointment with a
faculty advisor (yellow time slots) in the Psychology Dept.

appointment. Once the Psychology advisor has competed the forms and you
return them to the university at LH-108, the grad check is complete.
Students on academic probation have received a letter from the Dean’s office.
If you are on probation, you must now make an appointment for academic counseling with either a faculty or a student psychology advisor.

for appointments are posted outside H-507 on the bulletin board to the left of the door.
