Prepare for Advising Week

Advising Week for the Fall 2016 semester will be held October 31-November 4, 2016.    

Philosophy Advisor:

All Majors & Minors - Dr. Susanna Goodin

Humanities/Fine Arts Advisor:

Michell Anderson in the Arts & Sciences Dean's Office is the new HUFA advisor, effective Fall 2015. Contact her at 307-766-2641 or by e-mail at manders2@uwyo.edu.


Advising in A&S website provides more information on approved A&S Core classes, Non-Western classes, clubs, scholarships, etc. 


Sign-up sheets will be on faculty doors starting Monday, October 24, 2016.

Here are requirements for your advising session. Dr. Goodin will not meet with you unless you arrive with the following steps completed:

1. Look at a copy of the Class Schedule for the relevant semester from the Registrar’s Office. Remember, the schedule is available only on the web.

  • Web page for Department of Philosophy, Course Schedules

    • Philosophy Spring 17 Course Poster with descriptions of courses, click here

    • Registrar Web page for Spring 2017 Course Schedule, click here

2.  Inspect your degree evaluation and BRING to your scheduled appointment time (available online via WyoWeb->Banner Self-Service->Student-information menu).  See if there are any discrepancies between what you think you’ve done and what the University thinks you’ve done.  See what requirements you have remaining.

3.  Compile a list of courses that you need to graduate (based on the most recent degree evaluation) and/or are interested in taking.

4.  Of those courses, check the Class Schedule to see if they are being offered, and if so, the specific times.  

5.  Go online.  The Class Schedule does not provide course descriptions.  Current course descriptions for most departments and programs can be found by going to the relevant department/program.  Also, don’t hesitate to contact the instructor if you want further information about a course.

6. If the class has pre-requisites, take the appropriate steps to meet the pre-requisites (such as sign up for the required course).

7.  Write out a tentative schedule and BRING to your scheduled appointment time. For your assistance, click for a Course Schedule Form.

8.  Ask your advisor questions about anything you don’t understand or are concerned about.

9.  Check to make sure that the University has up to date contact information, and an up to date expected graduation date (this is especially important for seniors).

10. We look forward to seeing you!
