Psychology is a scientific discipline with a focus on the behavior of individuals. As a profession, psychology applies scientific principles to specific problems. Psychology has a unique approach to understanding behavior and working with people (or animals) to facilitate behavioral changes. The Department of Psychology at Illinois State University currently offers one major and two minors.

Advisement Before Advance Registration

Students are not required to consult with an academic advisor before registering for classes. Before registering for the summer or fall semester, students should check the department's Advising page to review the Requirements for the Major in Psychology or Requirements for the Minor in Psychology, as well as the appropriate Undergraduate catalog for graduation requirements. Students are responsible for planning their semester courses; the psychology academic advisor will not tell students which courses to take. Advisement appointments should be scheduled before your assigned registration date for the upcoming semester. During registration, students will be seen on an appointment only basis.


Fall 2019 registration closes Aug 18th.

After that date a closed course override will be required to enroll in any class, even if you are just switching sections of the same course.

All registration done after Aug. 18th must be done in person, through the Registrar's office in Moulton 107. Be sure to take your ISU photo ID. If you need assistance during registration, please contact the Registrar either in person at Moulton 107 or via phone-in assistance at (309) 438-2188, 8 am to 4:30 pm, Monday–Friday.
