Undergraduate Political Science Advising

Meeting with an academic advisor on a regular basis helps ensure overall student success. Advisors can assist students in preparing for graduation, course and schedule planning, and declaring majors and minors. Additionally, academic advisors can help students address advising holds paced on their accounts and can connect them with other campus resources for success.

Carolyn Sharp, the Political Science Department Peer Advisor, can answer general questions about the major or minor and help students navigate degree requirements and their online audits. To speak with Carolyn, please stop by Suite 3345 in the Carolyn and Kem Gerdner Commons Building during her walk-in office hours.

Please note: peer advisors cannot remove mandatory advising holds from student accounts. Please schedule an appointment with an academic advisor (above) to address such holds.

Honors Advisors serve as a bridge connecting students to opportunities tailored to their interests. Honors advisors and students work together to develop academic plans, explore campus and community resources, and set attainable goals.
