Students are encouraged to meet with their advisors at any time with questions or concerns about academics or progress toward their degree.
At certain points in every student’s academic career, they are required to meet with an advisor to continue attending classes. Students who do not meet with an advisor at these times will have an academic hold placed on their records, preventing them from registering for future semesters.
Students admitted as new freshman and who are in their first semester of enrollment at the U of U are required to meet with an advisor before registering for their next semester (students who begin in the summer are seen in the fall).
Students with 2-3 prior terms of enrollment and 90 or fewer credit hours are required to meet with their major advisor. Students who have not yet decided on a major will meet with a Major Exploration advisor in the Academic Advising Center.
Students with 60+ credit hours and at least 2 prior terms of enrollment who have not yet declared a major are required to meet with their major advisor to declare the major, or with a Major Exploration advisor in the Academic Advising Center if they have not yet decided on a major.
