Academic Advising Center

The Academic Advising Center provides advising for general studies, pre-majors, AHEAD and non-degree seeking students. We typically assist General Studies and pre-major students with registration, adding or dropping classes, creating a four-year plan, exploring possible majors and discussing academic difficulties.

If you have not applied to UAF, apply now or contact the Admissions Office before scheduling an advising appointment.
