Our Psychology Advising Office (PAO) is dedicated to helping psychology students succeed during their time at UMKC!

Undergraduate advisors from left to right: Anahi Ramirez, Shannon Howard, Elizabeth Wilson and Madeleine Hardt.

The Psychology Advising Office (PAO)  in Cherry Hall, Room 330 is open approximately 35 hours each week.  Students can make appointments by email: or phone (816.235.1092).  We also do walk-in appointments, though we prioritize students with appointments.  We strongly recommend that you call us prior to coming in to make sure that someone is available to see you.

Our advisors can assist with:

  • Registering for class
  • Planning your courses during your time at UMKC
  • Making sure you are on track to graduate
  • Answering questions about career options after graduation
  • Preparing for graduate study

When do I come to you and when to I go to Arts and Sciences advising?

Our office works in tandem with the College of Arts & Sciences Student Services Office to provide academic advising.  While CASSS provides academic advising and support for College and University requirements, the PAO specializes in assisting psychology students with psychology-related issues.  This  advising flowchart (PDF) provides an overview of when psychology students should visit the PAO and when they should visit the CASSS.  Hint: we hope you visit both offices regularly—at least once each semester!
