General Information -- Advising through ULink
Advising information is available on the University’s integrated student information system, ULink. You can email your students to announce the beginning of the advising period, send out advising reminders, and clarify expectations for new and continuing students.
By the beginning of October and March, all new students are assigned a departmental academic advisor. This is a good time to contact your advisees about at-risk alerts, tutoring resources, drop deadlines, the two-week advising period, and scheduling an advising appointment.
During an advising session, you should have access to the Student Profile (on ULink under the Faculty tab), Catalog, blue advising form or remote advising form, and any departmental information about your student’s major.
Advisors must remove a student’s advising hold for the student to be able to register classes. It is recommended that you remove the hold during the advising session. You may do this by clicking “Lift Advising Hold” on their Student Profile page.
