Academic Advising Information
The above INTS/PPOL Roadmap provides updated information on office hours and the services that each advisor can provide. The Korbel BA Program Staff are located in the Sie Complex, Suite 2030. Our suite is located on the second floor of the new Sie building.
To set up an advising appointment, students are encouraged to send an email stating the purpose of the requested meeting, and should include the dates and times they are available to meet. The advisor will then set-up an appointment based on availability and will respond as quickly as possible.
Spring Quarter 2019 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.

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.
