When do I meet with an advisor for course registration for next semester?

Advising for current students begins in March for the upcoming fall semester and October for the upcoming spring semester. If you’ve declared a major, you’ll likely be advised by a faculty member in your major department — so pay attention to email from your department around mid-semester. Starting a few weeks before registration opens, many departments also post fliers in their buildings and make in-class announcements about advising dates.

If you are a first-year student or have not declared a major, you’ll be advised in the College of Arts and Sciences Student Services Center.

Incoming freshmen are advised during Bama Bound summer orientation.
