Advising Appointments

Undergraduate Advising

We have a three-step process for helping our students move through the program towards graduation. If you’re unsure about which appointment you need, please call 501-916-3158 or email Dr. April Chatham-Carpenter.

Onboarding Advising

This advising appointment is for newly declared majors (if you have 45+ hours) or for majors that do not have an ACOM degree plan (check the “plans” tab in DegreeWorks). Choose the option that fits you best:

  • Students with 90+ hours and 15+ hours of your ACOM degree completed: schedule an appointment with Dr. April Chatham-Carpenter.
  • Online only students (this means you can only register for 9U online sections) OR student athletes: schedule an appointment with Mrs. Katie Halford.
  • On campus students (this means you can take both face-to-face and online classes): schedule an appointment with Dr. Bailey Oliver.

Peer Advising

This advising appointment is for students who already have an ACOM degree plan and have less than 90 hours.

The Communication Skills Center Assistant Directors will meet with students to help make sure they’re on track towards graduation. Schedule an appointment for peer advising.

Graduation Check Advising

Graduation is now right around the corner! You’re ready for this advising appointment if you already have an ACOM degree plan and have more than 90 hours. Schedule an appointment with Dr. April Chatham-Carpenter to make sure everything’s in order so you can walk across the stage at graduation!

Graduate Student Advising

If you’re a graduate student, call 501-916-3158 or email Dr. Gerald Driskill to set up an appointment.
