Undergraduate Advising

The English Department is proud to offer in-department advising. During the Registrar’s advising season, English majors can drop in to our advising center to go over their selection of classes, degree process, and discuss additional opportunities.

All English majors must visit the English Department’s advising center to receive their advising code. *Majors with 30 hours or more will be advised by the English department. Majors with fewer than 30 hours are usually advised by CASA to ensure that you are off to a good start with your general education requirements.*

Watch your email for information about our upcoming advising dates and times!
