Advising Assignments: 
In the College of Arts and Sciences all students are advised by professional academic advisors or faculty advisors. Each student has an assigned advisor in myUK.

Freshmen and Sophomores- (29 earned hours or less and first semester freshmen with more than 29 hours) are required to have an appointment with their assigned advisor.  Each appointment is allotted 30-minutes. Appointments can be scheduled in myUK under the myInfo link. Detailed instructions on how to make an appointment through myUK are here. If you need to cancel an appointment, you may do so in the myUK appointment scheduling system or notify your advisor in advance, by phone or email.

Biology Juniors and Seniors - (60+ earned hours and not on probation)  All Biology Junior and Seniors have been assigned a Biology Faculty Advisor. This individual will be your Advisor until you graduate. Check your academic/advising records in your myUK account to find out who your new Advisor is.

To make an appointment to meet with your Biology Faculty Advisor, please contact them directly via email.
The A&S Advising scheduler cannot be used to make appointments to meet with your Biology Faculty Advisor.
