Freshman Advising

All freshmen are advised through the University Advising Center. Due to New Maverick Orientation going virtual, you should meet with an academic advisor prior to your orientation session. After you register for orientation, your advisor will contact you to inform you of any testing requirements you need to complete and provide you with a link to register for a 20-minute virtual advising appointment. During your advising appointment, please have any transcripts of dual credit coursework or test score results (AP, IB, etc.) on hand.

Graduate Student Advising

Graduate students are often academically advised through a separate orientation offered by their academic department. If a departmental orientation is not offered, students should contact their academic department to schedule an advising appointment.
