Academic Advising

You have resources and support here to help you as a UNC Bear. One of the critical resources is Academic Advising, where you talk about your degree, classes, academic standing, and so much more.

Your advisor's role is to guide you through the process of earning your degree. Their responsibilities include knowing or finding answers to your questions, explaining policies and degree requirements, and pointing you towards opportunities and tools for your success.

Academic Advising is your opportunity to make plans for your education with UNC staff or faculty.

  • Find Your Advisor: Current Students

    You should expect a conversation with someone from your college (major and minor) to chat about your academic plans, classes you need to consider, and your education goals. Advising might occur over multiple meetings, in-person or virtually, and in an individual or group setting. 

    Find Your Advisor in Three Ways:

    1. Look at View Student Information in URSA (under the Registration Information section) 

    2. Look at Degree Works

    3. Look based on your Major: Who's My Advisor

  • New Students (registering for your first semester at UNC)

    If you are a new, first-time student (not a Transfer Student), your first advising session will be at New Student Registration. These are group sessions where you hear about your college with other new Bears and break into smaller groups to meet with an advisor about your program.

    If you are a new transfer student (meaning you attended another college or university), you will meet with the transfer advisor in your college. Use the Who's My Advisor site to find your major and email the advising center.
