Advisement Services

If you are a Junior or Senior in History, you need to be advised in the History Department in LeConte Hall.

You must have completed 60 course hours in order declare your History major and to be advised in the History Department. Please see below for your assigned advisor.

Advising for undergraduates begins in September for the spring semester, and in early spring for summer and fall semesters. The History Department posts start dates for advising in LeConte Hall each term prior to advisement. It is in your best interest to see an advisor when our advising sessions begin so that you may register at the earliest possible time. Please see below for the name of your advisor.
