Advising for Political Science Majors

Prospective students should obtain advising prior to declaring the major or minor. Students can contact advisors either during their posted office hours or by emailing or calling them directly to set up an appointment (contact information can be found on the "Meet Us" page).

All declared Political Science majors and minors should already be assigned to an advisor, which can be viewed through the Student Center tab on their My Sac State account. Students can contact advisors either during their posted office hours or by emailing or calling them to set up an appointment (contact information can be found on the "Meet Us" page).  New incoming and transfer students will be assigned advisors around the 4th week of the semester. If no advisor has been assigned, students can contact the department for assistance.  Students who wish to change their assigned advisor can do so by submitting the Request to Change Advisor form. Student records will be updated once approved by requested advisor.
