Academic Advising

About Academic Advising

Academic Advising is important to all of us – it is more than scheduling classes. Beyond courses selection and registration, your academic advisor can assist you with the following:

  • Connecting you with resources to bolster academic success
  • Navigating student issues (non-academic)
  • Advising on program admission and how to be a strong applicant
  • Offering recommendations on student involvement
  • Assisting with graduation preparation

Prior to meeting with their academic advisor, students should prepare by bringing a list of topics or questions to cover in order to use their time effectively. For formal advising appointments, it is recommended that students should bring their course registration plans as well as their degree audit.

All Clinical Leadership Management (CLM), Pre-Communication Sciences and Disorders (pre-CSD), Exploratory Studies in Health Sciences (ESHS), Human Health Sciences (HHS), and Pre-Medical Laboratory Science (pre-MLS) students should schedule formal advising appointments through your CHS program Canvas shell.

Academic Advisors are also available for general appointments outside of the "advising seasons." For these appointments, students should email their advisor based on program of study and advisor assignment can be found in MyUK under the "MyUKGPS" tab for Degree Planning and Registration.
