What can Academic Advisors help with? 

Academic advisors are valuable resources, who are here to help you successfully finish your degree! Make an advising appointment to get assistance with:

  • Creating an academic plan and tracking your progress towards the English major, Creative Writing major, and general degree requirements
  • Exploring the major (for prospective or undecided students) and/or minors in English, Writing and Film
  • Selecting courses that fit your personal, educational and professional goals and schedule
  • Learning about PSU resources to help you overcome academic challenges 
  • Preparing for internships, careers, graduation and/or graduate school 
  • Understanding academic policies and completing Academic petitions or other forms 

How should I prepare for my advising appointment?

Here are a few tips to get the best results from your advising appointment:

  •  Prospective students and post-bac students: please bring unofficial copies of all transcripts!
  • Current students: please bring your English Major Advising Worksheet if you have one already 
  • Don't be afraid to ask questions! University policy and procedures can be very complex, so asking questions is great way to get a handle on them.
  • Write down your questions so you don't forget them during your appointment.
  • Come prepared to your advising session by reading the requirements for your major/minor in advance
  • If you’re unable to keep a scheduled appointment, please call 503-725-3822 to cancel.
