Advising

The purpose of academic advising is to assist students in planning and navigating through their undergraduate studies.  An advisor can help you stay "on track" throughout your degree program and provide guidance when you are making decisions about your career after graduation.  New ACBS students are required to see an academic advisor once during each of their first two semesters at the UA; all others are encouraged to see an advisor at least once per year.  Appointments should be made to see your major advisor one to two weeks prior to your priority registration period.
