Current Registration Procedures for PSYCH 496, 498, and 499
Please follow the procedure outlined below to registration for the following types of credit: PSYCH 496 (Peer Teaching), PSYCH 498 (Directed Reading), and PSYCH 499 (Undergraduate Research).
In response to restrictions related to Covid-19 (e.g., social distancing and office closures), we have amended the process by which undergraduations will obtain add codes for PSYCH 496, 498, and 499. The lab faculty (for 499 credit), or supervising faculty (for 496 or 498 credit), will need to provide information about the student(s) they would like to sign up for credit. In the case of PSYCH 499 credit, faculty must also provide a syllabus outlining what the student(s) will be doing with them. The information and syllabus should be emailed directly to William Kaplan, email@example.com, in the Psychology Department Main Office. William will then send an add code to the student(s) via email.
The faculty email must include:
- Student's first and last name
- Student number
- Student's email address
- Course number (PSYCH 496, 498, or 499)
- Name of faculty
- Project title (if PSYCH 499 credit)
- Number of credits for spring quarter
Undergraduate Advising Office
The Psychology Advising Office has closed all in-office services at this time and moved advising operations to online. Drop-in advising via ZOOM may be available from 9:00 to 4:30 Monday through Friday. Please click the link below. We will resume regular in-office services when directed to do so by UW leadership.
Transferring to UW
The information on the linked page will give you better understanding of what it takes to become a psychology major after you transfer to UW. We could not cover everything a transfer student should know, so please feel free to contact us at any time with your questions.
Registration is quick and easy to do, but there are a lot of details to consider. Registration is conducted entirely online. You can follow the link from MyUW to get started.
Tutoring and Academic Assistance
The Department of Psychology offers academic assistance for students in multiple forms.
UW Psychology Research Pool
The Psychology Research Pool (PRP) is an administrative mechanism that (a) offers a convenient way for undergraduate students enrolled in psychology courses to gain experience with a broad range of psychological research, and (b) furnishes faculty and graduate students in the Psychology Department with participants for their research projects. Student participation in the PRP is entirely voluntary.
The Psychology Honors program offers a challenging educational experience with the opportunity for significant research and independent study. It requires a two year commitment and students generally join the honors program Autumn Quarter of their junior year.
Due to Covid-19 restrictions the 2021 Psychology Graduation Celebration will again be remote. The pre-recorded video will be broadcast at 9:00 am PDT on Saturday, June 12, 2021.
Student Safety and Wellness
There are multiple resources available to our students.
Life After UW
It is a wise idea to think about what you will do and where you will go once you graduate from the University of Washington early--long before you graduate. Planning for and setting professional goals can be a daunting task.
