In planning your program of study, and for questions not answered on our website, we encourage you to seek the help of our undergraduate or graduate advisors. Undergraduate students are expected to familiarize themselves with the Undergraduate Academic Advising Syllabus.


Appointments can be arranged through the School’s receptionist by calling (352) 273-0200. Remote academic advising continues to be our primary method of assisting students. Prior to your appointment, you will be emailed a link to your Zoom appointment. If you have a strong preference for meeting with an advisor in person, please state so when scheduling your appointment. Based on current UF guidelines, face masks are expected in all UF buildings.

Examples of Questions Requiring a Formal Advising Appointment:

  • Questions regarding future scheduling beyond one semester
  • Graduation Checks
  • Students seeking to add a minor
  • Any questions requiring confidentiality

Walk-in Advising for Undergraduates

Effective the first week of November 2021, walk-in advising hours will change to Thursdays from 8:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Walk-in advising is available for undergraduate students on Fridays from 8:30 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., during the Fall and Spring semesters. Remote academic advising continues to be our primary method of assisting students. A Zoom link will be provided to all students in our weekly email announcements.

Walk-in advising sessions are designed to answer quick questions and last no longer than five to ten minutes. Walk-in advising cannot develop an extensive plan of study beyond one term, resolve complex questions, or address matters requiring privacy. Walk-in advising is also available during the drop/add period of fall, spring, and summer terms.

Common Types of Undergraduate Walk-in Advising Questions:

  • Degree audit problems or questions
  • Questions clarifying FSOA Student Handbook policies (not requiring confidentiality)
  • Registration questions (holds, prerequisites, scheduling for next term)
  • Questions relating to dropping a course during the current term
  • Universal Tracking holds and FSOA holds
  • Undergraduate, 3/2, or 4/1 MAcc application questions
  • Access to University Resources (Study Abroad, Wellness Center, Bursar, Career Resource Center, etc.)

*Please note that we will do our best to assist you in walk-ins. While we may be able to answer your immediate question during walk-in advising, additional assistance may require an appointment in the future.
