Who is my advisor?

New student: During Orientation, you will meet with college academic advisors and peer assistants. You will learn about college and University requirements and register for your first semester.

Pre-major: Your first semester, you are assigned a college academic advisor who will stay with you through your time as an undergraduate. Your advisor works with students in your intended major and is also familiar with other programs in the college. Your advisor’s name and contact information are listed on My U.

Declared major: After your acceptance into a major, a departmental advisor or faculty member will be your main contact for academic planning. You keep the same college academic advisor, who continues to provide information and support as needed, but no longer need to meet before registration.

Prospective student: Please contact the Office of Admissions if you have questions about academic requirements or the admissions process.

University Honors student: You are assigned an Honors academic advisor who works closely with the college advising team.
