Advising and Registration

Advising in the Department of Political Science and International Affairs

Political Science majors select their courses for the upcoming semester during advising periods beginning in October (for spring courses) and March (for fall courses).  Students may log into Degree Works to see who their advisor is, and use myWildcat Success to make advising appointments (instructions below).  Prior to advising appointments, students should use Degree Works and the Time and Room schedule to familiarize themselves with outstanding requirements and course offerings. 

Advising meetings are held in 20 minute blocks. To maximize this time, we recommend that students bring a list of course selections and backup selections to discuss with their advisor.  Students will recieve email notifications about advising in their UNH email.
