Undergraduate Advising

Academic Advising is an important part of student success. 

Beyond determining course and major tracking and registering for classes, Eller Academic Advisors guide students to campus resources, clarify university policies, and engage students in developing academic goals.

The Eller College offers several options for advising. Select the best one for your needs:

Drop-In Advising is intended for quicker questions.  Please be prepared to wait during peak advising times throughout the semester. 

Email Advising

Email advising is ideal for quick, general assistance. Some general tips include:

  • Always use your University of Arizona email address. 
  • Include an explanatory Subject Line and salutation.
  • Clearly state the reason for your email. 
  • Politely make your request, and provide ample time for a response (we endeavor to respond within 1-2 business days, but may be delayed at peak times or complicated situations). 
  • Proofread for clarity and voice, and include a sign-off.  

Find Your Assigned Academic Advisor

Meet Your Advisor

The Eller Undergraduate Programs advising team is listed below. Students in the Foundational Phase are alphabetically assigned to a Foundational Business Management advisor based on the first letter of their last name. Students who have gained professional admission are assigned to their major advisor. Students admitted to the Honors College work with the Eller Honors Advisor while they are in the Foundational Business Management major and then also work closely with their major advisor once they have gained professional admission.

What to expect from Eller Academic Advising  

Eller Undergraduate Programs aims to provide quality academic advising to all students, with the goal of supporting them toward achieving their academic goals.  Every Eller student is assigned an Academic Advisor, but the entire advising team is cross-trained to support all Eller students.  Students are encouraged to proactively meet with their Academic Advisor throughout the academic year to ensure that they are on track toward completing all requirements. 

Advising appointments are posted weekly, around 9:00 am MST on Wednesdays.  Although advising appointments tend to fill during peak times throughout the academic year, we offer Drop-In Advising Mondays-Friday to ensure students receive timely answers to their advising questions.  We endeavor to respond to emails in a timely fashion, but students may experience delays during peak times. 

Student Expectations

  • Students are expected to be actively engaged in their academic experience.  This includes engaging in their coursework, actively participating in advising appointments, and staying aware of academic dates and deadlines.  
  • Students are expected to schedule academic advising appointments, join Drop-In Advising, or email questions to their Academic Advisor.  
  • Students are expected to read all university emails sent to their CatMail account, which often include reminders sent by their Academic Advisor.
