LAR Advisor's Information

Advising for LAR Majors

If you are an LAR major following the new curriculum, having declared your major Fall 2012 thru current, below you will find advising forms that stipulate General Education, University Studies, Degree (B.A. in College of Arts & Sciences), and Major (LAR) requirements. You can print out forms below. 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, see contact Cheryl Bednarik, LAR Secretary for your assignment as an advisee.
