Advisors Support Your Academic and Career Goals

Leer en Español

As concerns regarding the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) continue, the CALS community is prepared to serve our students in online capacities. This means all in-person meetings have temporarily been put on hold until further notice. We are here to support you and will do our best to answer questions or address concerns. Please continue to check your advisor’s calendar for their appointment availability, if needed, and make sure to check your University of Arizona e-mail. During this time, your academic advisors will offer virtual and phone appointments, plus virtual drop-in advising. Questions may be directed to advising@cals.arizona.edu or you may call us at 520-621-3616.

Getting Started with Zoom Video Conferencing

Academic advisors help you access services, provide academic advice, and support your goals. You’ll likely have at least two academic advisors: one for your major and a general college advisor. Your major advisor guides you through your declared program of study, including course selection. A general Career & Academic Services college advisor provides broad support including helping undecided students select a major, processing forms, interpreting policies, assisting with course schedules, and offering career preparation services.

We recommend that you meet with your major advisor at least once a semester to make sure you’re taking the correct courses to meet graduation requirements. Schedule appointments with your major advisor by phone or online at https://ua-trellis.force.com/uastudent/s/.

General Advisors, Career & Academic Services

General advisors in Career and Academic Services provide general education advising, interpret and enforce policies, process forms and petitions, and represent the dean of the college. A general advisor can answer questions about:

  • Requesting a change to the general education curriculum
  • Submitting a late change petition to withdraw from a class
  • Submitting a general petition for withdrawal due to a medical reason, harassment, discrimination, or other concerns
  • Registering for a course under the pass/fail option
  • Returning to the university after disqualification
  • Extending the time period to complete a course with an incomplete grade
  • Taking a leave of absence
  • Transferring credit from another institution
  • Increasing your unit maximum for registration
  • Obtaining the dean’s signature or permission
  • Referrals to appropriate academic and campus resources
  • How to make the most of academic advising
