Home Advising

Advisors advocate for and empower students to explore, develop and achieve their academic goals, ensuring they have a transformative experience at the University of Utah. An advisor helps open doors to new opportunities for self-awareness and growth so students gain the knowledge and confidence needed for success on campus and, eventually, in their chosen careers. Our advisor can address issues such as: choosing a Transform area of study (major, minor or certificate), academic standing, graduation requirements, registration holds and taking a leave of absence. Let’s connect!

What to know before you meeting with an advisor

You’ll get more out of your appointment if you prepare beforehand. Here’s what you should know:

As a student, you should be . . .

    • Prepared. Before your appointment, you should review a current Degree Audit report for your declared major, make a list of questions and goals for your appointments and bring a tentative class schedule.
    • Considerate. You should arrive on time to your appointment. If you cannot make your appointment, contact your advisor as soon as possible or reschedule online if possible. If you are 15 minutes late, you may need to reschedule your appointment.
    • Professional. Refrain from using your cell phone during your appointment if it’s a distraction. Take notes and be attentive. If you are contacting an advisor through email, please include your name and uNID.
    • Independent. Plan to attend your appointment on your own. Spouses, parents, friends and children can be distracting.
    • Responsible. Take ownership of your education and your success. It is your responsibility to comply with university requirements and policies, monitor your Degree Audit and progress towards graduation and take ownership of the outcomes stemming from your academic and personal decisions.

Your advisor will be …

    • Attentive. They will listen to your questions and concerns.
    • Respectful. They will be considerate of your unique interests, abilities and circumstances.
    • Accessible. They should be available for advising at a variety of times and in a variety of formats.
    • Informative. They will clearly explain degree requirements and clarify university regulations and policies. If your advisor doesn’t have an answer, they will direct you to someone who does.
    • Empowering. They will help you develop an individual course plan, refer you to campus resources, and connect you with academic and extra-curricular opportunities that support your personal and career interests.
