Ms. Valvo (Academic Advising Center, Fretwell, 2nd Floor)
Ms. Valvo is an academic adviser with particular knowledge of International Studies. Those of you fairly certain about your remaining INTL requirements or registering primarily for General Education courses should strongly consider an appointment with her. She is generally available every day, although you should also sign up in advance in Fretwell and identify yourself as an INTL student.

Important Information:

Students in International Studies:
Students registering for more than one INTL 3000 (Topics in International Studies) course will need a permit to do so. This is one of the components of the BANNER system. Vicky will be able to issue electronic permits. You will need to specify the CRN number, exact titles and section numbers of the INTL 3000 courses you are wishing to take so that she can enter them into the system. As is the case for all courses requiring a permit, once the permit is entered, students must then register for the courses themselves.

We will again offer three sections of INTL 1101 in Spring 201. We will not be holding out seats so be sure to register promptly.

We will be offering three sections of INTL 4601 (Senior Seminar). Students seeking to take the course must get a permit to do so. Permits for this course will be issued after you have been advised.

Undergraduate Students in Islamic and HGHR Studies: Advising for students in these programs is coordinated through the Department of Global, International & Area Studies. While a number of faculty affiliated with your respective programs have indicated a willingness to continue to provide guidance and advising support, they may ask you to come through the Department for your official advising.
