About Us

University College Advising has academic advisors to help with your academic needs, whether planning your semester schedule, teaching your First-Year Seminar class, looking at degree options, or helping to bridge the gap between student life and academic success. You'll also have the opportunity to work with our wonderful administrative staff when you call or visit our office in 214 Student Union. Please feel free to visit our office anytime during office hours, Monday - Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. 

We are also associated with the LASSO Center located in 021 Classroom Building. Tutoring, Success Coaching and Supplemental Instruction are all based out of that office. They are always open Monday - Friday 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., but tutoring is offered through extended hours during the fall and spring semesters. To learn more, please visit the LASSO Center's website.
