All Pre-English majors must meet with the English Academic Advisor for advising concerns. Once students complete the Pre-English requirements (see Getting Started), they may select a new faculty advisor from within their option. This advisor will assume all advising concerns and will serve as a mentor.

You should plan to meet with your advisor at least once a semester (typically during the advising weeks in October and April) in order to discuss strategies for fulfilling your General Education requirements, the Writing Proficiency Exam, your foreign language requirements, and, of course, your coursework within the English major. These meetings require your active and informed involvement, as well, so do plan to arrive with questions and some sense of a plan for your subsequent semesters. Your advisor will also give you your advising number at this meeting so that you will be able to enroll for classes on Cyberbear when your appointed registration slot arrives.

Students may elect to change advisors at any time for any reason, and may also consult with the English Academic Advisor in LA-133 at any time, as well.
