Advising is a crucial component of keeping our students on track to graduation. Advisors assist students in course selection each semester and help them navigate through their college years. Prior to registration, an advising hold is placed on student accounts. Advisors lift this hold after they have been advised. Ideally, this system of regular meetings allows advisors and advisees to develop a relationship during the student’s time at the University.

Who Is My Advisor?

Log into your ULINK and under the Registration tab, go to Get Advised, then Click Meeting with your Advisor  -- where the light blue arrow is poinitng, that is where your advisor is listed AND make sure you select the correct term (dark blue).

If no information is listed, please contact your college/department/major using this link ; please scroll down for their contact information.

Please Note:  First Time Freshman may not have an advsior assigned until the second week of classes.
