Students whose Peoplesoft ID is an even number are assigned to Andrew Lotz, and students with an odd number are assigned to Meri Long. Students may consult with an advisor during their regular walk-in office hours or may self-schedule an appointment in the respective advising appointment book located in the reception area of 4600 Posvar Hall.

Students who declare the PS major will receive an invitation to the next scheduled orientation session, which is mandatory for all PS majors (but open to any student who is interested in the major). The orientation is designed to provide general information about the PS major, to introduce students to the departmental advising process, and to answer questions that students frequently have about internships, career possibilities, and postgraduate opportunities.
