Q. Who is my advisor?
A. The College of Arts and Sciences administers the Multidisciplinary Degree Program. If you are interested in pursuing this degree plan, e-mail for more information.

Q. When should I be advised?
A. Students are required to be advised prior to each enrollment period.


The Bachelor of Arts and Bachelor of Science degrees in Multidisciplinary Studies are university-wide degrees administered through the College of Arts and Sciences. There are two levels of academic counseling for this degree: program level and graduation level.


The program-level advisor will provide information about Multidisciplinary Studies and will work with you to design a major around a coherent theme to meet your individual needs. After the Vice Provost for Instruction has approved your plan, you will meet with your program-level advisor each semester prior to enrollment. You may schedule an advising appointment using the iAdvise link.


Upon achieving 90 credit hours (completed + enrolled), you should schedule an appointment for a degree check through the iAdvise appointment system with the college-level academic counselor in the College of Arts and Sciences Academic Services office, 124 Ellison Hall, 405-325-4411.


Students transferring to Multidisciplinary Studies from other universities should meet with the college-level academic counselor for an evaluation of credits. Please call 325-4411 to schedule a Transfer Student appointment.
