Advising Form for English Majors

Only use this form if:

  • You have completed more than 30 hours and less than 90 hours
  • You would prefer to be advised online and not in person (I am more than happy to advise you in person; please just make an appointment: 569-3161)
  • You are not a Cooper Honors Scholar
  • You do not have substantial transfer issues
  • You are not new to the English program or to the University

All other students must be advised in person:

  • General Advising: Dr. Trey Philpotts, 569-3161
  • Cooper Advising: Dr. Paul Yoder, 569-8321
  • English Ed. Advising: Dr. Bradley Minnick, 569-3517

Step One

  • Be sure that you have officially declared as an English Major (or English-Creative Writing, or English—Secondary Education). Please do not skip this step. A lot of students think they are officially declared, and they are not. To check your status, go to BOSS:
    • Click “Continue” at the bottom of the screen
    • Click on “Student Services”
    • Click on “Student Request Menu”
    • Click on “Declare Major/Minor”
    • Be sure you have a major and minor, and they are correct

Step Two

Step Three

  • Now complete the form below, based on what you have already successfully completed, and what you still need to take. Check your Department and Course Numbers, and times, for accuracy. A small mistake can create big problems.

Title of Course
(e.g. “Gramm. Analysis”)
Day and Time
(e.g. “TR 10:50-12:05″)

You must agree to the following provisions before you can be advised online:
