Student advising

Advising hours

For the foreseeable future, English advising will occur by phone, email, or Zoom. Be sure to check in by email before the appointment to find out logistics. Please email your advisor beforehand any forms or paperwork you would normally bring to the meeting.

Students should meet with an academic advisor at least once each semester to discuss course selection, progress toward graduation and to create lasting connections with faculty and staff in the Department of English.

Prepare for your appointment

  1. Check your record in MyNevada to clarify courses you still need to take and list non-English courses you need to take on a sheet of paper.
  2. Print out the worksheet for your English specialization and cross off English classes already taken.
  3. Sketch out a rough plan of your remaining semesters, with potential courses highlighted on the worksheet.
  4. Print and fill out any forms that require the advisor's signature, such as declaration of major or minor.

Major/Minor worksheets

Major and minor declaration forms can be found on Academic Central.

For recommended four-year plans, please review the course catalog.
