Frequently Asked Questions
History Undergraduate Program

  1. How do I declare a History major?
    • If you are already in the College of Arts & Sciences, visit 213 Life Sciences East to fill out the necessary paperwork. 
    • If you are in a different college, fill out the Undergraduate Academic Program Declaration Form, contacting your original college's student services center for "Originating College Signature" and Arts & Sciences 213 Life Sciences East for "Approval signature from College." 
  2. How do I declare a History minor?
    • Visit 213 Life Sciences East to fill out the necessary paperwork. If you need to discuss classes, contact Dr. Zeide: zeide@okstate.edu 
  3. How do I find short courses that are offered at unusual times, or for less than standard credits?
    • Visit the Registrar's page: https://registrar.okstate.edu/SIO-Schedule and download the relevant semester's spreadsheet. Once you've downloaded the spreadsheet, you can use the Sort feature in Excel to sort by start date (to find courses that haven't yet begun), number of credits, or any other parameters.
  4. How do I drop a course? Do I need to meet with my advisor? 
    • See all the policy details here. If the drop deadline has not passed, you can just typically drop a course yourself on Banner. Try that first. If it doesn't work, you'll need to fill out a drop/add card, and get the relevant signatures before taking it to the Registrar's office.
