The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice (SCCJ) and advisors are excited to welcome new freshman and transfer students to our program. All new students receive information from the New Student Enrollment (NSE) office outlining the steps required to attend Orientation and schedule an advising appointment through the NSE process.
The School of Criminology and Criminal Justice places a high priority on advising and student services and encourages current students to see their advisor each semester or whenever questions arise. To plan your class schedule it is best to make an appointment 2-3 weeks before your priority registration appointment (when you are eligible to enroll in classes for that semester). Your priority registration time will be available in your MyRED account. The best way to schedule an appointment with your advisor is in Student Success Hub. You may use your advisor's SSH direct appointment link:
If you need assistance making an appointment, you may call the School's main office at 402-472-3677.
Students interested in changing their major to Criminology and Criminal Justice may also schedule an advising appointment with either Amber Christianson or Karen Fulton using the SSH direct appointment link or by calling the office at 402-472-3677.
