Tips to get started
  • Prepare a what-if degree audit with your desired major and minor. If you need help generating a what-if degree audit, please contact the LTS Help Desk at 715-836-5711.
  • Get an advising packet for your proposed English major/minor and mark off courses that you have already taken. If you have completed three or more semesters, sketch out your remaining semesters on the degree plan (the last page of the advising packet). Advising packets are available from the kiosk outside the English Department Office, on the 4th floor of Centennial Hall. They are also available on the English Department website on the page regarding the particular emphasis.
  • If you are an ARCC student with an ARCC advisor, meet with that advisor. Bring a copy (either paper or electronic) of your what-if degree audit and your marked-up advising guide.
  • If you are a student with a traditional department advisor, meet with the English Department's Director of Undergraduate Studies (during office hours or by appointment) and bring a copy (either paper or electronic) of your what-if degree audit and your marked-up advising guide.

Please contact Alaina Guns (gunsam@uwec.edu) or Jordan Plehal (plehalj@uwec.edu) or stop in the English Department office (Centennial Hall 4102) to make an appointment with the Director of Undergraduate Studies.
