CAS Advising Center

The College of Arts & Sciences has full-time academic advisors to work in tandem with you and your faculty advisors to ensure you have a professional and personalized advising experience.

The CAS Advising Center serves as the primary resource for new majors and transfer students who choose one of our 16 plus degrees and academic programs. We are available to help College of Arts and Sciences students make changes to their schedules, complete their graduation applications, and answer short questions about financial aid along with any other questions that students have.

Should you have any questions, please feel free to reach out directly to our advisors or visit UAFS's Academic Advising homepage.
