About Advising

Welcome to the English Undergraduate Program Office! We are here to provide students with information about courses, degree requirements, study abroad, and any other items of importance.

Students are encouraged to make an appointment with an academic advisor every semester.

Advising Syllabus: Take a look at the advising syllabus as a reminder of what you should expect form your advisor and what they will be expecting from you.

Spring Updates: The College of Liberal Arts will continue to meet with students virtually for advising by default. Should you prefer an in-person meeting, you must select the “In-Person” Meeting Type in Navigate. To offer you quality academic advising in the safest possible way, we recommend that safety precautions, such as mask wearing and social distancing are followed.
