The College of Arts and Sciences recognizes the value of academic advising. Academic advising provides students with the opportunity to build a relationship with their advisor for the purpose of gaining assistance in planning their educational career, in learning the skills needed for academic success, and in learning how to access the variety of resources and services available to them on campus.
In the College of Arts and Sciences all students are advised by professional academic advisors or faculty advisors. Advising is conducted by appointment and each appointment is allotted 30-minutes. Appointments with professional advisors can be scheduled in MyUK under the MyInfo link. Detailed instructions on how to make an appointment through myUK are here. If you need to cancel an appointment, you may do so in the myUK appointment scheduling system or notify your advisor in advance, by phone or email. Many questions can be answered via email.
