Schedule an appointment with a Faculty Advisor

Your Faculty Advisor will help you with course selection and advise you on major options, concentrations and other questions related to your degree program. Not all faculty advisors use myWildcatSuccess to schedule their appointments, but you can check to see if your advisor is in the system following the steps below. Please note that you will need to know what department your major is in.

    What’s the difference between professional and faculty advising?

    Professional Advisors work with undeclared and associate degree students but are an excellent resource for all students. Professional Advisors:

    • Make academic plans
    • Help students with time and stress management
    • Support students in goal setting and prioritization
    • Provide study away advising
    • Create graduation plans during junior year
    • Meet with excluded/probation students and those who receive academic alerts
    • Explain the petition for variance in policy process

    Faculty Advisors work with students who are declared in their specific degree program. Because faculty are experts in their field, they are a great resource for building your professional network. Faculty Advisors:

    • Guide students through the major
    • Develop and approve areas of focus within the major
    • Approve academic internships
    • Advise students on course selection once a semester

    Which advisor should I make an appointment with?

    Contact Academic Advising if you:

    • Receive an Academic Alert
    • Receive a letter that you have been excluded
    • Want help outlining an academic plan and reviewing your completed and outstanding degree requirements
    • Want to add or drop a course after the semester has begun
    • Want to change majors
    • Want to create a senior year plan, which should be created in your junior year
    • Want to discuss time/stress management. Academic advisors can review syllabi, create a weekly time management schedule and discuss ways to manage stress.
    • Would like to study away—just be sure to create your VIA account and explore study away programs before your advising appointment.

    Contact your Faculty Advisor if you want to:

    • Select courses and/or receive your Registration Access Code (RAC), if you’ve declared a major
    • Discuss major options, concentrations or specific areas of study
