Five Ways to Absolutely Crush Registration Next Week

Want to do registration right?  Do these 5 things and you’ll own it.

  1. Know Your Registration Time Slot and Plan Ahead: Spring registration starts on October 29th, but not everyone gets to register right at 8:00 am that Monday morning.  Most of you will need to wait until your specific enrollment appointment time.  Find your enrollment appointment time (along with some other tips) by following the instructions on this page.
  2. Understand SIS: Want to know what General Education Courses you still need to take?  Wondering if you have taken all the courses for your minor?  There’s an easy way to answer those questions, and it’s to take a look at your SIS report.  If you aren’t sure how to find or read your SIS report, this 4-minute tutorial will give you the basics. That said, the best way to figure out what classes you need to take is to meet with your faculty advisor (the name of that person can also be found on SIS) or with peer advisors from the Psychology and Human Development Student Success Center.
  3. Know About the Human Development and Psychology Want Ads and Handshake (through Career Services):  Interested in doing a research or teaching assistantship and want to know what is available?  Psychology faculty often post information about research assistantships, teaching assistantships, and internships on the Human Development and Psychology Want Ads.  Additionally, many community internships are posted on Handshake through UWGB Career Services (check out this video on PRO).  Make sure to check there too.
  4. Stats First… Then Research Methods: And this will serve as our semesterly reminder to that you need to meet your statistics and research methods requirements early because research methods (PSYCH 300) is a prerequisite for about half of our upper-level psych courses.  We recommend you take COMM SCI 205 (Social Science Statistics) as soon as you can and take PSYCH 300 (Research Methods in Psychology) the semester after that.  This will open the door for you to take most of our other upper-level courses when you’re done.
  5. Visit the Student Success Center: All these tips are good… but, honestly, if you really want to crush registration, you should meet with a peer advisor from the Psychology and Human Development Student Success Center.  He or she is the best person to talk you through registration, and help you make sure you are on track to graduate.  You can schedule an appointment with the center at their website.

  • a way that you use psychology in your work or your career
  • a review of a psychological concept or literature and how it is relevant to everyday life
  • original research you have conducted as a Research Assistant, Honors Student, or in class

The PSI Talks Will Be Held On Wednesday, March 27th, 2019 at 7:00pm in Fort Howard Hall of the Weidner Center. 

To be considered, you must:

  • be a UW-Green Bay Psychology major or a graduate of the UW-Green Bay Psychology program,

  • provide the name of a UW-Green Bay Psychology faculty member who would be willing to endorse your talk and supervise your talk if you are selected.
  • not have given a talk at the 2017 PSI Talks.

Please email the information below to Dr. Ryan Martin (martinr@uwgb.edu) by 5:00 pm on Friday, November 2nd.  We will then select semi-finalists who will meet with the selection committee for a brief interview the week of the November 12th.  The final presenters will be identified and notified that week.
