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

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.
