Advising Office. I have worked in this office
for 21 years. I will be happy to meet with you
concerning your questions related to evaluation

Peer Advisors
The Psychology Peer Advisors are advanced
undergraduate psychology majors who assist other
psychology major/minors in understanding and
completing their psychology degree requirements.
The Peer Advisors inform students of academic
policies and procedures, assist in conducting
orientations for freshman and transfer psychology
student orientations, and provide advisement on
other psychology-related matters such as
procedures in applying for graduate school. Peer
Advisors are trained by Karen Cox, the Director
of Undergraduate Advising for the Psychology
Department, and earn upper level psychology

Degree Audit
The Degree Audit is a computer-generated
evaluation of a student's progress toward a
specified degree program. It is NOT an official
transcript. Use your Degree Audit to check which
degree requirements you have met and which you
have not met. Audits are online through the MyUCF
portal, or the Advising Center. For more
information check out the following

Participating in undergraduate research will
expand your academic experience at UCF. Research
is a process of careful inquiry leading to the
discovery of new information. Although there are
some differences in how research is conducted
across disciplines, research is not restricted to
certain disciplines and occurs in all programs at
UCF. Undergraduate students are currently working
on numerous and diverse projects. For more
information look into the following
link http//www.our.ucf.edu/ We also encourage
you to regularly check the bulletin board inside
the Psychology Advising Center for newly posted
internship and research opportunities.
