Advising Mission, Goals, and Contact Information

We collaboratively guide, educate, and empower students, within an inclusive environment, to realize their potential and discover their purpose.

 Goals of the Undergraduate Advising Program

  • Support a successful transition into the College of Arts and Sciences and Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs.
  • Educate and guide students toward opportunities afforded by the college and the University.
  • Educate students on the college requirements and expectations.
  • Provide opportunities to aid in a successful student transition to life after graduation.
  • Create supportive professional relationships with students of all backgrounds.


Students are encouraged to speak with their Professional Advisor about individual questions or concerns by appointment. Please schedule an appointment with your Professional Advisor through OrangeSUccess to discuss your academic plans, progress toward degree completion, and goals beyond graduation.


Professional Advisors are available for 15-Minute Walk-Ins for brief, time-sensitive discussions. Students sign in for a Walk-In at 329 Hall of Languages. Walk-In hours are:

Monday through Friday 1 p.m. to 4 p.m.

During Registration: Walk-In hours have been extended to 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. every day from April 1 through April 16th, 2019.
