Academic Advising helps students match their passion to their degree.


Beginning July 26, 2016 through August 31, 2016, the Office of Undergraduate Academic Advising will host Walk-In Weeks.  Students who have not yet been advised will be able to speak with an advisor without an appointment between
8:00am – 6:00pm.  Check-in will end at 4:00pm daily to ensure all students are advised by 6:00pm. Wait times will vary.

Advising is mandatory prior to class registration for the upcoming semester.

Declaring Your Major:

At UALR, “declaring” a major is deciding upon a major you would like to pursue. To declare YOU MUST:
·   Confirm your designated advisor/major department.
·   Make an appointment with your designated advisor/major department.
·   Follow the same steps if you would like to change your major or explore a particular major in more detail.

For Your Appointment With Your Academic Advisor:

·   Be on time to the advising meeting.
·   Call your advisor if you believe you will be less than 10 minutes late.
·   Be prepared to reschedule your meeting if you are more than 10 minutes late.
·   Have questions ready to get the most out of this valuable time with your advisor.
