Undergraduate Advising

            ​LAS Undergraduate ​​​​​Academic Advising 

The LAS academic advisors are available for appointments. The appointment type (via Zoom, phone, or face-to-face) will be offered at the advisor’s discretion. You may find your advisor’s name by selecting the Academic Progress option in Campus Connect, via BlueStar, or see below for the list by major. Our advisors use BlueStar to schedule appointments. For information on scheduling a BlueStar appointment, see the BlueStar ​Scheduling Guide.

Please email or call (773) 325-7310 for any additional questions or concerns.

The LAS Undergraduate College Office provides holistic advising services for students who are declared majors in LAS. We help with planning coursework, switching majors, choosing a minor, outlining study abroad and internship options, and transition 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 online Undergraduate College Office resources to clarify administrative policy and to initiate special academic requests (see Forms). "Drop-in" remote advising is available, via Zoom or by phone, 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 an undeclared student in LAS, please contact OAAS.
