Before you can graduate, you must complete and submit a concentration release form. Concentration release forms should be completed during the term prior to the term that you plan to graduate. April graduates should have this completed during the final fall term. August and December graduates should complete this during the final winter term.
You must meet with a concentration advisor to complete your Senior Concentration Release form. Appointments are made through the Psychology Student Academic Affairs Office. The Psychology Student Academic Affairs Office is located in 1343 East Hall. Our phone number is (734)764-2580. The office is open for regular business hours every Monday-Friday, 8:00am-5:00pm.
After your concentration advising appointment, your Concentration Release form will be sent electronically to the LSA Auditors. You must also apply for graduation through Wolverine Access, under Student Business. It is not required, but is strongly suggested that you also make an advising appointment with the LS&A Academic Advisors to go over the general education requirements.
Note for Those Studying Abroad: If you plan to be abroad during your final year, it is strongly suggested that you take care of your Concentration Release prior to leaving the country.
Note for Dual Concentrators: If you are a dual-concentrator or if you have also declared a minor, a Senior Concentration Release needs to be completed for each concentration and/or minor. You should consult each department to learn how they handle this process.
Note for Honors Students: If you are a Psychology Honors student, you must make an appointment with the Psychology Honors Coordinator (scheduled through the Psychology Student Academic Affairs Office or online). The Psychology Honors Coordinator will complete the Honors Concentration Release form. The completed Honors Concentration Release form will be electronically sent to either the Honors College or Residential College.
Psychology Graduation Event
The Psychology Department hosts an event to honor Psychology; Brain, Behavior & Cognitive Science; and Neuroscience graduates at the end of Winter semester. This is usually an open house where friends and family of the graduating student are welcome.
Those who have graduated during the prior August or December commencements and those graduating in April are invited to attend the event. Students graduating the following August who want to participate must contact the Psychology Student Academic Affairs Office by February to receive an invitation.
