University Advisement Center

Special Walk-In Day On April 23rd

UAC will be holding a one-time walk-in day on Wednesday April 23rd to accommodate students during open registration.

We will start checking students in at 8:15 AM until 11:15 AM and again starting at 1:15 PM through 4:00 PM. Students are encouraged to schedule an appointment to avoid a long wait, but can come in on a walk-in day as an alternative.

Drop With Dean's Permission Begins

We are currently at the point in the semester where the Dean's permission is required for dropping one or more sixteen-week courses. The Dean of University College will grant permission to drop a course only under extenuating circumstances. 

It is University College policy to encourage students to seek an instructor-initiated drop instead of seeking permission from the Dean.  Instructors may drop students through the end of the semester.  Go to FastInfo/Answer ID 2903 for more information on instructor drops. If you need to drop all of your courses, please contact the Dean of Students Office.

To drop a course students must write a short essay explaining their situation and follow these instructions. Along with essay they must turn in the Drop with Dean's Permission form. They will receive a 'W' at the end of the semester and their GPA will not be affected. Check out the Registrar's website for more important dates here.

Fall 2014 Registration Opens This Week

Registration for the Fall 2014 semester will begins this week for graduate, senior, junior and sophomore students. Freshman students will begin registering the following week.

Students who are not yet admitted to their program must have previously received UAC advisement in order to register. Students are encouraged to schedule an advisement appointment as soon as possible so that they may register on time. Here is the link to view your registration date according to your number of earned credit hours.

Be Patient, It's Peak Time for UAC Advisors

The coming weeks are the busiest times of the academic year for UAC advisors, therefore responses to emails are delayed and wait times on walk-in days are longer.  Some advisors still have appointment availability, and students are encouraged to make an appointment

May 2nd Shortened Walk-In Hours

On Friday May 2nd, UAC advisors will be assisting TNT (transfer orientation) students all afternoon. Therefore, walk-in hours for all other students will be shortened and take place from 8:15 AM to 11:15 AM. Regular hours will resume the following week.


Advisor Emails

The coming weeks are the busiest times of the academic year for UAC advisors, therefore responses to emails are delayed and wait times on walk-in days are longer.  Some advisors still have appointment availability, and students are encouraged to make an appointment.

If you email an advisor about a hold you should expect a response within two working days. Advisors do try their best to quickly respond to student emails.
