Students who receive their primary advising at the UAC (Undeclared, Pre-Nursing, Undergraduate Non-Degree, and Pre-Medical Sciences and Pre-Physical Therapy students whose primary major is Undeclared) schedule appointments in Navigate or by contacting their advisor directly. Instructions on scheduling an appointment in Navigate can be found here. UAC advising staff contact information is provided below.
