Advising

As an interdisciplinary major, Jewish Studies benefits greatly from expert advising through the College of Liberal Arts. The Undergraduate Advisor is responsible for giving you information regarding your degree plan, monitoring your progress, and helping you out in areas such as petitions, scholarships, study abroad and transfer of credit. You should see the advisor at least once a year--a short meeting can often solve what seem like difficult problems. You should also be in touch with the Undergraduate Coordinator, who works closely with the advisor.

Advising for Jewish Studies majors will be done by appointment with the SCJS Academic Advisor, Dr. Cynthia Gladstone at c.gladstone@austin.utexas.edu,  CLA 4.304C (MWF) and SRH 1.340 (TTH) 

Advising Bars

The purpose of advising bars is to make sure that students contact the undergraduate advisor before they proceed with their degree plan. Advising bars, which are placed on the records of incoming freshmen and newly transferred students and on the records of students who are on scholastic probation. Advising bars will be removed only after the student contacts the undergraduate advisor or the undergraduate/graduate coordinator. Students are encouraged to contact the undergraduate/graduate coordinator routinely prior to registration time to check whether their records are barred.
