Advising

Faculty Advisors

The Director of Undergraduate Creative Writing as well as the full time professors are designated undergraduate advisors. One or more of them will be available for advising from Monday through Thursday each week. During these walk-in sessions students may consult about the requirements for the major, application procedures for workshops and how to select the related courses for the major.

Transfer Credit and Study Abroad

Students must obtain the approval of the Director of Undergraduate Studies to receive credit for courses taken elsewhere. Transfer students and students planning study abroad should bring relevant material—transcripts, course descriptions, syllabi—to the Director, who decides whether and how outside courses may be used for the major. No more than two courses taken elsewhere may be applied to the major.

Student Records

Majors are expected regularly to fill out the Creative Writing Major Worksheet, to be reviewed by the Director of Undergraduate Studies (or Advisor) and submitted, with any notes from Director, to the Undergraduate Coordinator, Dorla McIntosh, in the Creative Writing Program office, 617 Kent Hall.
