  • Spring 2023 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, Inspire. Due to the heavy volume of advising appointments during this time, we are unable to accept emailed appointment requests. Students are encouraged to meet with an advisor prior to the advising period.

    INDIVIDUAL ADVISING SESSIONS (For those who have completed all three core courses) 

    1. You can find out exactly who you need to meet with by taking one of the very short surveys below:

    International Studies Major Survey

    Public Policy Major Survey

    1. After taking the survey you will be directed to the online appointment scheduler or asked to email your adviser directly. If you need to access the individual appointment scheduler, you can access it here: Individual Advising Scheduler

  • Declaration of Major Form

    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.
