Dear History majors,
Enrollment for the fall 2013 semester will begin on Monday, March 25 and run through Friday, April 19.
If you are GRADUATING this semester, CONGRATULATIONS, and please skip down to the bottom of the message for some important reminders.
If you are enrolling for the fall, here are the steps you should follow:
1. Look over the course schedule at:http://courses.k-state.edu/fall2013/schedule.html
Put together a list of courses that you can discuss with your advisor.
2. Review your DARS report to see what requirements you need to fill.
(Your DARS report is available through iSIS.)
You should also keep a record of your progress on the forms for a B.A. in History or B.S. in History. These forms are available at: http://www.k-state.edu/history/undergrad
NOTE: If you are a history major and have not taken HIST 300 yet, you should enroll as soon as possible. This is a required course, and it is best to take this BEFORE you take many of your upper-level courses in History.
3. Check your enrollment time in iSIS.
This will be clearly displayed in your Student Center. In order to ensure that the information on course availability will be current, appointments with advisors cannot take place more than 48 hours prior to the time you will be allowed to enroll.
NOTE: If your enrollment time begins on March 25 or 26, you may schedule an advising appointment for before spring break on March 14 or 15.
NOTE: The History Department will not schedule appointments after April 19.
4. Schedule your advising appointments through the History Department.
You may schedule an appointment in person by stopping by the office in Eisenhower 208, or by phone at 785-532-6730. Advising appointments may not be scheduled via email.
5. Check out the additional advising resources on the History Department’s Web site: http://www.k-state.edu/history/undergrad
Forms at this site include the template for a B.S. and B.A. degree in the College of Arts & Sciences; the template for History majors, double-majors, and minors; and a chart that explains the distribution requirements for 500-level History classes.

Important facts you should know about enrollment through iSIS:
1. Pre-requisites are enforced by the iSIS system. If you do not have the pre-requisites for a course, you will not be able to enroll in it.
2. iSIS also incorporates a wait list feature. When a class closes, you may add your name to the wait list for that class. As spots open in the class, iSIS will automatically enroll the first person on the wait list.
3. iSIS does not generate any notice that a student has been moved from the wait list into the class. So, if you are on a wait list, you must periodically check your course schedule to see if you have been added to the class. If you have not been added to the class, iSIS will display your position on the list.
4. iSIS will not allow you to schedule more than 21 hours. If you are on the wait list for a class, those hours will be counted toward the 21-hour limit just as if you have already been added to the class.
5. iSIS will not allow you to enroll in two classes that meet at the same time (or overlap in meeting times). Again, if you are on the wait list for a class, iSIS will treat it the same as if you were in the class. You cannot be enrolled in a class and on the wait list for another class that meets at the same time.
6. iSIS will also not allow you to enroll in more than one section of a class, and this includes classes where you are waitlisted. You cannot, in other words, sign up for an open section of a class at the same time that you are on the wait list for a closed section of the same class.1. In order to ensure that the information on course availability and other options will be current, appointments with advisors may be scheduled no earlier than 48 hours prior to the time you will be allowed to enroll. Your enrollment time will be clearly displayed in the Student Center of iSIS. Courses for the spring semester and a current copy of your DARS report may also be viewed through your iSIS account.
