Academic advising for INTS majors is essential. Advising helps you plan your schedule effectively and avoid future problems. Advising also provides information on available courses, graduation requirements and extracurricular activities. The BA Program Office in INTS advises on program requirements, tracks academic progress, and approves the completion of the major requirements for graduation. Transfer of credit from study abroad must also be approved by an advisor.
