If you’re a declared Political Science major with 27 or more hours, you’ll need to see a faculty member from the Department Political Science for advising. (If you're undeclared or have fewer than 27 hours, you'll need to see an Arts & Sciences Advising Center Advisor.)
Our faculty advisors are here not only to help you plan your schedule, but also to answer questions about our programs of study, study abroad options, career options, as well as graduate and professional schools. You may schedule an advising appointment during any point in the year, but should note that the heaviest advising time at UNO is typically during the months of October, for the spring semester classes, and March for the fall semester.
Rather than assigning academic advisors, the faculty have decided that it is best to allow students to choose the advisor with whom they are the most comfortable. Students should stop by during the advisor’s office hours or make an appointment with the advisor by e-mail.

Students ready to declare a major or minor in Political Science should stop by the Department of Political Science office in Arts & Sciences Hall room 275. There is a form to fill out that will make your declaration formal.
When you are ready to graduate, you will need to file a copy of the graduation form with the Registrar’s Office early in the semester in which you plan to graduate. In the semester prior to graduation you will also need to schedule a degree audit meeting with an advisor in the College of Arts & Sciences office. Commencement information is available on the UNO Commencement page.
