Academic Advising 101


During academic advising, students work with UAEC staff to select their upcoming courses based on classes they have already taken, AP credit in progress, and their extracurricular activities.

Students wanting to register for a class must complete a "Course Request." While we strongly encourage all students to participate in advising, if a student has successfully completed 8 or more credit hours, they can fill out the Academic Waiver to forgo advising and request the course they want to take. However, all courses must be approved.
 
Types of Advising:

  • Individual Online Sessions (audio chat or text chat) 
  • On Campus Sessions

Students sign up for academic advising through Early College Student Resources (ECSR).
