With the exception of those students participating in the Honors Program, University College academic advisors advise all students who have less than 24 credit hours earned and are two semesters removed from high school graduation. University College also advises all Undeclared students. You must be registered for the current or future term to be assigned an academic advisor and success team. These assignments are made overnight after you register. If you are a new student, you can find your orientation details here.
