Common Questions

1. For students wanting preapproved transfer credit, we only preapprove courses if you provide a syllabus for the course you want preapproved. We generally do not approve courses from departments of criminal justice or departments of social work. Courses from a sociology department are best.

2. When should I take SOCI 3311 and 3312? These classes can only be guaranteed once a year, not every semester cannot so you should take them as SOON AS POSSIBLE!

3. Two semesters before planned graduation, student is strongly advised to obtain a degree check from Dedman Records (Clements Hall).

4. All 3000 and 4000 level classes taken to fulfill the major requirements for a Sociology BA degree must be passed with a C- or higher.

5. About 3 weeks before both fall and spring registrations, there will be pre-advising for sociology majors. Please sign up for an appointment to be advised at that time

Please fill out and bring the correct checklist with you to your advising appointment.
