Academic Advising

You can rely on your academic advisor for information, assistance, and encouragement throughout your time at UAB. In general, he or she is available to:

  • help you identify your goals and develop educational plans to reach them;
  • help you understand degree requirements, course selection, and schedule planning;
  • refer you to resources across campus that can boost your academic performance;
  • help you understand academic policies and procedures; and
  • provide information about potential areas of study.


You should meet with your advisor well in advance of registration so that you have time to talk about your interests and goals, discuss your degree requirements, and review the courses you have chosen for the next semester. It’s also a good idea to meet with your advisor during each semester if you have questions, want to explore your options, or need to discuss any difficulties.


To find your advisor, click through the list below for names and phone numbers. For some programs of study, you’ll see (U) listed next to undergraduate advisors and (G) next to graduate advisors.
