Undergraduate Advising in Communication

All Communication majors should discuss their academic progress with an advisor.  Remember:  You must bring your DARS report with you to each advising session.  Instructions on printing your DARS report are available here


1st and 2nd year students:  Please call 503-725-3822 to make an appointment with Martha Dyson.  Martha's office is located at SMSU M305 

3rd year+ students:  Please call the Department of Communication at 503-725-5384 to sign up for a 20 minute advising session. 

International Students:  Meet with an advisor who specializes in international admissions.

Before you see an advisor, you must follow these important steps:

  • Create a folder with important paperwork for advising and bring it to all your advising sessions. This includes copies of your transcripts, your printed DARS report, and anything else you think would be helpful for your advisor to view so that he/she can better assess your progress in the program. 
  • Create a draft of the courses you want to take, using the Bulletin as your guide to requirements. A tentative course schedule can be found at the Course Planning Guide website

    Cancelling advising appointments:

    • If you've already signed up for an appointment and must cancel, let us know by calling the front desk 503-725-5384
