The College of Arts and Sciences recognizes the value of academic advising. Academic advising provides students with the opportunity to build a relationship with their advisor for the purpose of gaining assistance in planning their educational career, in learning the skills needed for academic success, and in learning how to access the variety of resources and services available to them on campus.

All currently enrolled primary A&S majors have an assigned advisor listed in their myUK account. We encourage you to contact your assigned advisor, if you have questions or concerns.

Advising Assignments:
In the College of Arts and Sciences all students are advised by professional academic advisors or faculty advisors. Each student has an assigned advisor in myUK.

Freshmen A&S students (29 earned hours or less and first semester freshmen with more than 29 hours) are required to have an appointment with their assigned advisor. Each appointment is allotted 30-minutes. Appointments can be scheduled in myUK under the myInfo link. Detailed instructions on how to make an appointment through myUK are here. If you need to cancel an appointment, you may do so in the myUK appointment scheduling system or notify your advisor in advance, by phone or email.

Biology seniors (90+ earned hours and not on probation) should go to this link for information about advising: http://bio.as.uky.edu/biology-group-advising-session-registration

All other students (30+ hours) should look for information from their assigned advisor regarding walk-in and group advising opportunities.
