Advising For English Majors: 

  • English Department Faculty Advisors are assigned after a student has been approved as an English major. If a student wishes to be advised by a particular member of the Department, he or she must obtain that faculty member’s agreement prior to applying to the major. Students will be notified of their assignment by email, but this information can also be found in each student's e-portfolio under Academic Career > Advisor Information. Students seeking information about the major but who do not have an English advisor should consult the chair.
  • Advisor Reassignments: When Department members are absent from their duties for whatever reason (sabbaticals, leaves, retirements, etc.) the Department Administrative Assistant will reassign their advisees.  We do our best to keep changes to a minimum and inform students of these changes, but again, this information will be found in student e-portfolios as stated above.
  • Meeting with Advisors: Students should plan to see their advisors at least once a semester during Pre-Registration for the following term. Please plan ahead. Advisors have regular office hours and will make special appointments if necessary, but they cannot be available at all times.
