Sophomores Overview

Welcome new and returning sophomores!

Students who have successfully completed 30 semester hours are considered sophomores. Sophomores who entered UIS as freshmen are transitioned to a faculty advisor in their major program after successfully completing 30 semester hours. Your first year of college is behind you and the year ahead is full of promise, hope, and new challenges. If you have not already formally declared your major, this is the year to do so.

OASIS can assist new transfer sophomores identify their advisor, as well as provide assistance with DARS and connecting to other support units on campus. Newly entering sophomores need to contact their  advisor and schedule an advising appointment as early as possible.

Your first semester at any new institution is bound to present some challenges as you adjust. OASIS will help guide you during the transition.

We look forward to working with you!
