We are here to help you succeed! Our advising appointments allow you to chat with an advisor who can lead you in the right direction, answer questions and more.
Based on academic records, students are also advised about the requirements of general education, electives, upper level courses and potential petitions. Given that our students often have competing commitments, advising is completed according to a simple goal: to make all reasonable effort to ensure your years of investment in obtaining your degree with a major/minor in Sociology is free of unexpected problems.
Are you a new student? New students have received an offer of admission but have not begun their first term of classes. Please visit our new students webpage to find the information you need for enrolment and next steps.
