Academic Advising Headline

Your advising needs are important to us. The Department of History has a number of options in place to ensure full access to academic advising through phone, video, or in-person appointments.

You do NOT need an appointment with an advisor to declare a minor or to ask questions that can be answered in a few minutes. Email our academic advisor at instead.

Please keep in mind that students are ultimately responsible for creating a schedule that works for their academic interests and graduation time line, for completing general education and university requirements, and for seeking help from University College advisors regarding these requirements. Students are also responsible for generating and reviewing their individualized DARS report every semester, registering for courses, applying for financial aid, and completing all forms needed for petitions and/or graduation.

The Department of History values student feedback. After each appointment, students will receive an email with a link requesting that they take a brief survey. Please answer it promptly.
