History and Social Studies Advising

Lauri Sue Torkelson (Wilson 301C) and Frank Hill (Wilson 301B) conduct all advising for the Department of History. They are normally available 8:00–11:30 a.m. and 1:00–4:00 p.m. Monday–Friday to assist with educational concerns and gladly accept walk-in students during those times. No appointment is necessary, except during pre-registration, which starts about the 8th week of each semester. If pre-registration advising is in session, students will need to sign up for an appointment time in Wilson-Short 301. Lauri Sue Torkelson can be reached at torkelson@wsu.edu or 509-335-4475 and Frank Hill can be reached at fhill002@wsu.edu or 509-335-5670 for assistance.

Academic Advising

Each semester students are required to meet with their advisor to plan for the next semester. Typically, advising is done in October for the following spring and in March for the following fall and summer.

Be sure to sign up for an appointment prior to your registration date and come to your advising appointment with a tentative schedule.
