We also assist students with class registration, the add/drop process, semester planning, and making appropriate referrals to campus resources.

Please view our Advising Syllabus for a complete guide for which advisor you should see.


While advising is not required for students UNLESS they are new to the major or on scholastic probation, it is recommended that all GOV majors visit the advising office regularly (especially during the last two years of coursework).
