Advising For Special Populations:
 UA Little Rock has awesome academic support services for students within special populations such as athletes, military, Chancellor’s Leadership Corp, Charles W. Donaldson Scholars Academy, and others.  These students will be advised by the new centralized advising office and continue to receive academic support from the administrative units overseeing these populations.

When Will Centralized Advising Commence:
 The first population the new centralized advising office will advise are all students entering UA Little Rock for the summer and fall 2018 semesters.  Advising start dates for these semesters have not been finalized.

Advising For Current Students Under 45 Credit Hours
Advising for current students will range between February and May 2018 for the summer and fall 2018 semesters.  During this time period, current students who have not successfully completed 45 credit hours will continue to receive advising services within their major college or department.  Only entering summer and fall 2018 students will be advised by the new centralized advising office.
