Academic Advising

Academic advising is an active, ongoing partnership between the advisors and students grounded in teaching and learning. Advising is based on students gaining accurate and appropriate information and direction to help make their educational experience relevant, coherent, and meaningful. It is a process that assists students in connecting with the University of Arkansas, making thoughtful decisions related to their academic experiences, and maximizing their educational and career opportunities. Quality academic advising is essential to achieving the university’s vision.

Academic advising services are offered differently across campus to meet the unique needs of the different colleges and their students. Choose your college and major (or one you might be considering) below to connect with an advisor.
