Advising for LAR Majors
If you are an LAR major following the new curriculum, having declared your major since Fall 2012, you will find advising forms that stipulate General Education, University Studies, Degree (B.A. in College of Arts & Sciences), and Major (LAR) requirements below. You can print out these forms or stop by the LAR office in LArts 356 for paper copies. Read them carefully, and ask for help if anything is unclear. Although your advisor and COIN will help you, it is ultimately your responsibility to track completion of requirements.
Please seek out your LAR advisor each semester for help staying on top of required courses. You can find your advisor’s name on COIN. If you do not have an advisor, please contact Cheryl Bednarik, LAR Secretary, who will assign you an advisor.
