Academic Advising: What to Expect

Advisors help students learn about their chosen field of study. Faculty are familiar with the coursework and requirements you need in order to achieve your goals.


New to UVM? Find your advisor. Students are assigned faculty advisors before their arrival on campus. You can find your advisor assignment in the myUVM portal. If you wish to change advisors, you can make that request by emailing the department at pss@uvm.edu. Faculty will contact their advisees in advance and provide their office hours. Advisors can also be located via the easy to use and helpful app called Navigate.

Current students, considering a change of major? Discuss your options first-
