The College of Humanities and Social Sciences Undergraduate Advising Center serves students who have declared a major, minoring, an interest, or are considering a major, in the College. We assist students with appropriate course selection, fulfilling general education requirements, understanding pre-requisite requirements for their major, creating academic plans, and finding and referring students to other campus resources for their academic success.

Advising is an integral approach in a student’s progression toward graduation.  Academic advising helps students to navigate through the rules and regulations of the Institute; helps students stay on track for graduation; disarm the traps of class pre-requisites; guard against students taking additional classes that will cost more money and delay graduation.

Greetings from the Director

Hi!  Welcome to the College of Humanities and Social Sciences (CHSS) at Kennesaw State University.    The CHSS advising center is comprised of professional advisors and peer advisors who are here to engage and support students in making the most of their academic career.  It is our mission to be helpful, knowledgeable, and professional to every student.  We use prescriptive, developmental and intrusive models in advising to work with our students to foster retention and student success.  We are dedicated to enriching the lives of our students to reach academic, life, and career goals. 

The CHSS academic advising team is knowledgeable with all university, college, and departmental policies and procedures.  During the semester the student will use appointment plus to schedule an advisement session.  Our center is designed to see all students from 0 hours (freshmen) to 59 hours (sophomore) who is interested or declared a CHSS major.  For the juniors and seniors it is based on the major.  Communication, Criminal Justice, International Affairs, Political Science and Sociology students will continue to be seen by the CHSS Advising Center.  African and African diaspora Studies, Anthropology, English, English Education, Geography, Geographical Information Systems, History, History Education, Modern Language and Culture, Philosophy, and Psychology majors the students will see their assigned faculty advisor.   

Please peruse through our website, as it is full of valuable information and frequently ask questions.  We are excited you are here in the College of Humanities and Social Sciences at Kennesaw State University and we look forward to establishing a long standing relationship with you.

Go Owls,
Kathy Earwood
