Academic Advising

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. Both in person and remote Zoom appointments are available. If you request a remote Zoom appointment, prior to the start of the meeting you will be emailed a link to your Zoom appointment.

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

Walk-in advising is available for undergraduate students on Tuesdays from 8:30am – 12:00pm, during the Fall and Spring semesters. We also hold special walk-in advising during drop/add every semester. During these times, undergraduate students may stop by Gerson 210 for advising in person, or click the appropriate Zoom link below for virtual advising. The links will also be available in our Friday 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.

Common Types of Undergraduate Walk-in Advising Questions:

  • Degree audit problems or questions
  • Questions clarifying FSOA Student Handbook policies
  • 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. During drop/add, we are only able to address matters related to the current semester.

Visit us at Gerson Hall Room 210, or follow the instructions below for remote advising via Zoom.

NOTE: Students are expected to treat Zoom advising as they would any business appointment. This means being prepared with questions for your advisor; dressing appropriately as if you were meeting in-person; and securing a quiet, private space to talk. Do not attend from a moving vehicle or while walking to class, etc. We strongly discourage the use of smart phones for Zoom advising, as this limits the visibility of important information your advisor will share. Please use a laptop, desktop, or tablet if at all possible. Failure to adhere to basic standards of professionalism is grounds for your advisor to end the advising session.
