The Advising Office for the Latin American and Caribbean Studies program is located in the Jackson School Office of Student Services (Thomson Hall, Room 111).

The LACS Program Advisor, Linda Iltis, sees students by appointment and on a drop-in basis. The LACS office staff may be able to answer basic advising and course-related questions.  However you must meet with Dr. Iltis for any of the following:  degree audits or reviews, graduation, declaring or dropping the LACS major or minor, or signatures on any form.

To set up an appointment, drop by Thomson 111 and sign up for a time slot in the binder/calendar at the front desk.  If you are unable to stop in to make an appointment, you may call 206.543.6001.
