Undergraduate Advising

Students must submit intent to graduate forms (also called file for degree forms). An advisor from the History department must sign the form before you take it to the Dean's office. If you are graduating with a double major, you must file two intent to graduate forms, one for each major. You will need to see an advisor in the other major as well as an advisor in history. The deadlines for filing these forms are:

  • October 1 for May graduation
  • April 1 for August graduation
  • August 1 for December graduation

The forms are available on line at: http://www.uri.edu/artsci/forms/

You may also pick up a form in the History Department's main office, Washburn 113.

The following faculty are happy to serve as advisors. You may make an appointment using e-mail or by phone.
