- Plan Ahead. Ahead of meeting with your advisor before your enrollment date, review your degree
sheet and all the requirements of your major. Use this, along with the course listings
online, to prepare a proposed schedule with specific courses for next semester. For
students who have completed 90 hours, you can download your most recent Grad Check
and Degree Sheets via STAR star.okstate.edu (under Reports).
- From the Student Self-Service page on Banner, you can check for holds, check your enrollment date, view general education courses, and view available courses and times. This is also where you’ll officially register after your advising meeting.
- Fill out a proposed Enrollment Advising Form before coming to your advising meeting.
- Schedule Your Appointment. You should meet with your advisor in the weeks before your enrollment date, making
an appointment via Slate at https://slate.okstate.edu/.
- Make note of the purpose of our meeting in the Slate notes: indicate “enrollment.”
- Schedule these meetings as far in advance as possible.
- If you cannot make your appointment, cancel via Slate as soon as possible, so that another student may be able to take your spot. If you are late to your appointment, you may be asked to reschedule.
- In person and virtual appointments are available through the Slate system. The virtual appointments are expected to take place over Zoom. If you need alternate accommodations, please email in advance.
Frequently Asked Questions

- How do I declare a History minor?
Contact Sarah Mutschelknaus at firstname.lastname@example.org
- What minors in other areas can I consider to go along with the History major?
You can declare a minor in any College, and there’s no restriction on how similar or different it should be from your major. Many History majors do end up minoring in an Arts & Sciences field, because most of those classes then overlap with our degree sheet, especially the Upper-Division Related area, but as long as the extra classes work within your planned graduation timeline, any minors can fit. You can see the full list of minors here. If there are particular ones you’re considering, Sarah Mutschelknaus can help you think about how they might fit with your degree sheet.
A Minor in Forieng Languages goes hand-in-hand with History and is extremely useful if you plan to pursue graduate school in History.
