Advising

Academic advising is a valuable student service that is available to you all year. In History, we have you covered. Freshman and sophomore students should meet with a Professional Advisor in the Humanities and Sciences Advising Center (LA 133) and/or Professors in the History Department throughout their undergraduate education. Junior and senior students will advise with History professors (of the student's choosing). Please take an active role in advising -- ultimately, you are responsible.

  • Professional Advisor for Freshman and Sophomore students
  • Professors in the History Department are available to meet with you throughout the year during their posted office hours. They can help you navigate departmental course offerings and inform you about educational options to best meet your interests and goals. 

Course schedules are available outside the History Department office (LA256). Please seek assistance, particularly when advising for General Education requirements and writing courses.

Pre-Registration Advising Period

  • Time for students to plan for the following term
  • Check in on their progress
  • Receive an advising number

Pre-Registration Advising Period typically takes place in October and March/April just before students are able to register for the following term.

Come to your advising appointment prepared, have a good idea of what courses you would like to take the following semester. Please also feel free to discuss your General Education or other University requirements, or any other aspect of your education in the College of Humanities and Sciences.

The Graduation Application

Students need to turn in the completed Graduation Application to the Humanities Advisor in LA 133C two weeks before the Registrar's office deadline. Feel free to consult with the History Advisor about the specifics of the application.
