How do I get advised?

  1. Make an appointment with your advisor. Email your advisor to set up an appointment.
  2.  Before your appointment, pick up a Registration Planning Sheet from the history office (room 1105 Forest Drive Building). Fill in some of the courses you want to take and make a note of any questions you may want to discuss with your advisor. You may also need to pick up a current History Check Sheet and Upper Division Course Brochure.
  3. Keep your appointment with your advisor. In fact, be a little early. Advisors like that kind of stuff. If you find that you can’t make it, call your advisor before-hand. They like that, too.
  4. Once you have been advised, your advisor will give you your RAN. Your RAN is a number that allows you to register on WINGS.   (This number changes every semester). Hang on to this number – you will need it for registration, drop/add, or to withdraw from a course.

Important Registration Information:

  • History classes fill quickly
  • Check your WINGS account for your earliest registration time
  • Make an early appointment with your advisor
  • You must meet with your advisor to get your RAN
  • It matters what classes you take. Don’t base your decision on convenient time slots alone: TALK with your advisor

How do I override a core history class?

Overrides for HIST 1112 and HIST 2110 are rare. If you think you have a compelling reason to request an override, you may contact the department chair two days prior to the first day of class.

Decisions will be made on a case-by-case basis.

How do I request an override in an upper-division class?

  1. Contact instructor of the course by email, phone, or in person. The decision to grant an override rests solely with the instructor.
  2.  Be prepared to explain why you need the override. A valid reason is required to obtain override approval.
  3. The instructor is responsible for notifying the Department in writing of override approval, and supplying student’s name, Eagle ID, and course information.
  4. If the override is approved, the Department will be responsible for registering the student in the class. The student should check his or her WINGS account to make sure the class has been added to his or her schedule.
