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.

Walk-In Advising

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) 10:00am – 4:00pm during certain times of the year (check schedule below). To see an advisor, please sign in at the front desk in 233 Bryan Hall.

Come in early in the day to avoid a long wait as a walk-in during peak times. 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. 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 topics:

  • Drop/add class
  • Minor form approval
  • Forms that need an advisors signature
  • Assistance with course scheduling for the semester
  • Issues with registration
  • Tracking hold

Email Advising

Email (undergraduate.business at ufl.edu) general and policy questions to our advising inbox. Be sure to use your GatorLink email address and include your UF ID in your message. We strive to answer all emails within 2-3 business days. However, there might be a delay in response during peak times.

Please note that we cannot remove holds, change majors, or make appointments via email. For time sensitive request, please do not email, but come in to the office for walk-in advising or schedule an appointment if the issue will take longer than 5-10 minutes.

Frequently Asked Questions

Can I be advised over the phone? How about via email?

You must see an advisor in person to receive individual academic advisement. Federal privacy laws prevent an academic advisor from discussing your academic record over the phone. Non-individual specific questions, such as questions of policy, may be answered via email (undergraduate.business at ufl.edu) if you contact us using your GatorLink account.

How can I see an advisor in person?

You can speak with an academic advisor at the front walk-in counter, or you can make a one-on-one appointment. Walk-in advising is limited to brief policy-related questions, approval of forms and other minor issues. More in depth issues, such as long range academic planning, career counseling, or academic probation, should be addressed in a one-on-one appointment.
