Undergraduate Advising

What is Advising?

Academic advising is a process in which students and academic advisors work together to achieve the student’s educational and personal goals. Typically the student and the advisor collaborate to create a broad understanding of program/major requirements and university and DAAP policies and procedures, as well as to develop course schedules in order to fulfill degree requirements and student interests. Academic advisors can also identify additional campus and community resources as needed to enhance the student’s tenure, both personally and academically, at UC.

Contact an Advisor - Virtually

While working remotely, our advisors are still available to assist you! If you need to speak to an advisor, please determine if an appointment or drop-in visit would best fit your needs (see chart below). Both appointments and drop-ins are online using Cisco WebEx.

DAAP Advising will be holding virtual drop-in hours:
Beginning in June, Tuesdays from 9AM - 11AM EST
