Advising and Registration

Advising Protocols

Political Science majors select their courses for the upcoming semester during the preregistration periods in November and April.  Students may log into Degree Works to see who their advisor(s) is, and use myWildcat Success to make advising appointments (instructions below).  Prior to advising appointments, students are strongly encouraged to utilize Degree Works and the Time and Room schedule to familiarize themselves with outstanding requirements and course offerings. 

Advising meetings are in 20 minute blocks. To maximize this time, we recommend that students bring a list of course selections and backup selections with them to advising appointments.  Students will be notified via email when preregistration begins.
