Advising and Preregistration
Every English major is assigned a departmental advisor. All majors are expected to see their advisors each semester in order to plan their programs and to discuss their progress through the departmental requirements. Formal advising periods are scheduled immediately after the class schedules for the next semester are published. Only by consulting with their advisors can majors preregister for a range of important English courses that are otherwise "reserved": English 390, 393, 394, 395, 396 and 399. Majors should also feel free to consult their advisors about career possibilities, problems they are having in their coursework or any other matters that are directly related to the program of study of the English major.
