Beginning in March 2020, the Undergraduate Program Office began advising students remotely. The following processes are in place until further notice:

Advising for Registration

  • If you must be authorized by your advisor to register, please schedule an appointment with your advisor through MyUI as usual.
  • If you are not required to be authorized by your advisor but do want to talk with your advisor about your planning, please schedule an appointment with your advisor through MyUI as usual.
  • When scheduling an appointment, please select either Zoom or Phone. Advisors are able to meet in either format. We encourage Zoom meetings, since you are able to share your screen with advisors, which can be helpful in planning.
  • If you selected Phone, please include your phone number in the Notes field when scheduling an appointment. If you do not include a phone number in that field, advisors will call the number listed on your student record.
  • Prior to your meeting time, review your degree audit and have a draft plan of courses saved in Schedule Builder.

Advising for Other Issues

  • If you have a question that is not connected to registration, you may either email or schedule an advising appointment, depending on the length of the query. 
  • Please follow these guidelines for deciding whether to email or schedule an appointment:
    • If the matter could reasonably be resolved in a drop-in meeting (5-10 minutes), please email your advisor.
    • If the matter requires more time than this, please schedule an appointment with your advisor in MyUI.

Advising for Non-Tippie Students (including admissions questions for current students)

  • If you are not advised in the Undergraduate Program Office and have an advising or admissions question, we are still happy to assist, as we would normally do during our drop-in hours.
  • Please complete the online Drop In Referral form to submit your query. It will be directed to the appropriate advisor who will be in touch with you shortly.
