Academic Advising Information
Winter Quarter 2021 Academic Advising Period
Each quarter, the Korbel BA Program Advising Team conducts advising meetings for all Korbel BA Program students during the three week advising period prior to registration. The purpose of this advising period is to ensure students are well prepared to register for classes for the following quarter and to delete registration pins. During that time, academic advising appointments are made through the online scheduling system (SARS). Due to the heavy volume of advising appointments during this time, we are unable to accept emailed appointment requests.

The Korbel BA Program Academic Advisors use the below forms to keep track of your degree progress in our office. We have made them avaliable to you to help you stay on top of your degree requirements. If you have any questions about the planning sheet, please reach out to us at email@example.com.
The powerpoint below details the requirements for completing a BA in either INTS or PPOL. For more specific questions, please reach out to us.

The INTS Planning Sheet provides a means to visualize the International Studies major requirements for students as they progress through the degree program.
The PPOL Planning Sheet provides a means to visualize the Public Policy major requirements for students as they progress through the degree program.
The PPOL Minor Planning Sheet provides a means to visualize the Public Policy minor requirements for students as they progress through the degree program.
This is a planning sheet for the Dual Degree (4+1, BA/MA) Program. Additional information on the Dual Degree Program is found on the Graduate Program Opportunities tab.
Declare INTS/PPOL Major
To declare INTS as your major, please print out this form, fill it out, and then make an appointment with one of our academic advisors. The academic advisor must sign the form and then you must submit the form to the registrar to complete the process.
The academic advisor will also sit down with you to ensure you understand the degree requirements and how they relate to your current academic progress.
Concurrent Degree Programs
If you are planning on pursing a major in the Bachelor of Arts and a major within another Bachelor Program (eg. Bachelor of Science in Business Administration), you will likely need to complete a concurrent bachelor's degree program.
Please see the registrars page on concurrent bachelor's degrees for up to date information on the requirements.
Please note that those wishing to pursue a concurrent degree must use the concurrent degree form, rather than a declaration of major form.
