Welcome to all of our new majors and welcome back to all of our returning students!

We are seeing Government majors by appointment only.  Please schedule an appointment to meet with an Academic Advisor.  If you are a prospective Government major, you must attend an information session.  

Schedule an appointment HERE.


The Government Undergraduate Advising Office assists students with: degree requirements, scholarships, study abroad programs, honors programs, petitions, special waivers, scholastic probation, and transfer of credit. We also assist students with class registration, the add/drop process, semester planning, and making appropriate referrals to campus resources.

Please see a Liberal Arts Student Division Advisor in Gebauer Hall (GEB 2.200) to discuss any of the following: Q Drops and Pass/Fail, One Time Exeptions (OTE), Applying to Graduate, Official Degree Check, etc.

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).
