Undergraduate Advising

Advising through Spring Quarter 2020 Notification

The LAS academic advisors are offering appointments through Spring Quarter 2020. The appointment type (in-person, online, or phone) will be offered at the advisor’s discretion. You may find your advisor’s name by selecting the Academic Progress option in Campus Connect or via BlueStar. Many of our advisors use BlueStar to schedule appointments and may have their availability posted. For information on scheduling a BlueStar appointment, see the BlueStar Scheduling Guide.

If you are unable to locate your advisor or are having trouble scheduling an appointment with them, please email for assistance or with any other advising question.

The LAS Undergraduate College Office provides holistic advising services for students who are declared majors in our college. We help with planning coursework, switching majors, choosing a minor, outlining study abroad and internship options, and transitions to graduate and professional school. Office staff monitor students' academic progress, update their electronic academic records and conduct graduation audits. Students are encouraged to utilize Undergraduate College Office resources, either online or in-person, to clarify administrative policy and to initiate special academic requests (see Forms). Walk-in advising is available the first week and the registration week of every quarter.

We also collaborate closely with the Office for Academic Advising (OAAS), which provides similar services to LAS students who have not yet declared majors.

If you are a declared major in LAS and would like to schedule an appointment with an academic advisor, please contact us.

If you are an undeclared student in LAS, please contact OAAS.
