Academic Advising and Career Coaching
Heavener School of Business advisors can help you figure out your degree requirements, change your major, drop a course, choose your classes, and provide you with valuable career advice. We've even created an advising syllabus which outlines our mission, expectations, and activities that you should undertake from freshman to senior year.

Do you have a quick question or have a form that needs to be signed? Students can have 5-10 minutes with an advisor on a walk-in basis (first-come, first-serve) 10:30 am - 4:30 p.m. during certain times of the year (check walk-in advising schedule listed below). To see an advisor, please sign in at the front desk in 233 Bryan Hall.
Please note that at certain times of the year a large number of students may attempt to receive academic advisement at the same time.
Examples of walk-in advising issues:
- Drop/add class
- Minor form approval
- Forms that need an advisors signature
- Assistance with course scheduling for the semester
- Issues with registration
- Tracking hold
Due to administrative meetings and information sessions, the schedule is subject to change.
- Advisor Walk-In Schedule: November 25 – November 27
- Advisor Walk-In Schedule: December 2 – December 13
- Advisor Walk-In Schedule: December 16 – December 23
Walk-In Advising Tips!
Ways to avoid a long wait as a walk-in during peak times:
- Come in early in the day.
- We will ensure that all students who have "signed in" are seen before we leave for the day. To be able to do this during very busy periods, we may close the sign-in list early.
Make an appointment early, preferably before advance registration. See registration dates listed on the Registrar’s website.
Appointments are used for any questions, concerns, or discussion you’d like to have with an advisor that will last longer than five minutes. Interested in double major or dual degree? How about needing help planning out your 4 years at UF?
Thirty minute individual advising sessions are available by appointment Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM- 4:30 PM and can be scheduled up to one week in advance. To make an appointment with an academic advisor, please do not email your advisor; contact our front desk at (352) 273-0150. Note that appointments may be very limited during peak times such as drop/add and advance registration. Friendly reminder… appointments tend to get booked very quickly.
Examples of appointments:
- Career and academic planning
- Career Advising
- Academic difficulty
- Withdrawing from the University
- Major change
- Dual Degree/Double Major
