What Can Your Advisor Help You With?
Academic advisors are here to help you make the most of your experience at the University of Utah. Please meet with your advisor once per semester, or at least once per year, to discuss progress toward your degree and any concerns you may have. This will allow you to know more about course availability and pre-requisites (which are strictly enforced). It is crucial that you work closely with your advisor to graduate without delay. If you are a transfer student, you are encouraged to meet with the department advisor early in your academic career, even prior to admission to the University of Utah.

Academic Advisors are available for:
  • Declaring a major or minor
  • Explaining University graudation requirements, including general education, bachelor degree and course requirements
  • Developing an educational plan that includes scheduling, timing and using the DARS and GPS systems
  • Connecting with University and departmental opportunities and resources
  • Evaluating transfer credits
  • Navigating the system from admission to graduation and everything in between
  • Discussing anything regarding your education at the U of U
