Advising for Philosophy
The most important thing about advising for philosophy is that you want to see an acvisor to work out details of your progam. Make an advising appointment with a faculty member or through the philosophy office. We are here to help!
Each year, philosophy majors receive an "advising hold" on their Winter registration. To clear the hold, meet with a faculty advisior to be sure that things are on the right track, and complete the advising hold clearance form.
