Faculty and staff in the department advise students on options specific to their chosen program as well as special learning and co-curricular opportunities.


How to see the Sociology Advisor

You can make an appointment with the advisor by enrolling in the Online Appointment Scheduling system to the right. Advising appointments are the optimum method for inquiring about a major change, adding a concentration, applying to graduate school, transfer credit, the transient policy, graduation audits & the internship program.

Walk-in Advisement hours are for brief questions only (registration, scheduling, change of major and add/drop issues).
Monday through Thursday, 10am - 11am or 3pm - 4pm

 Departmental Advisors are unable to fill out or assist with SAP appeals. Please see the Arts & Sciences Office of Academic Assistance for SAP appeal advisement. Additionally, Graduation Audits are by appointment only! Grad Audits will NOT be signed during a walk-in session.
