Our primary focus is on first- and second-year students. UAS provides a safety net for any student not sure where to go for help. In support of this mission, the UAS office offers students a broad, comprehensive array of services aimed at aiding students in developing and implementing an appropriate and meaningful education plan.
The academic advising program is based on the Appreciative Advising model. It is the intentional collaborative practice of asking positive, open-ended questions that help students optimize their educational experience and achieve their dreams, goals and potential. The advisee and advisor, as partners, work together to discover the student’s passions, and dreams, design a plan to achieve those dreams, deliver on that plan, and make changes as necessary to achieve their goals.
Virtual stop-ins: the alternate option for a scheduled appointment for spring advising.
UAS will begin virtual stop-ins for spring advising on November 1st. Students will sign into a virtual queue in the Success Network (Starfish) and receive a phone call from the next available advisor. When signing into the virtual queue, include the phone number where you can be reached, and when it is your turn, the next available advisor will contact you.
If you want to discuss withdrawing from a class, sign into the virtual queue on October 29, the last day to withdraw. Include the phone number where you can be reached, and the next available advisor will contact you.
UAS will return to scheduled appointments the week of November 8.
In the meantime, be sure to check for any other holds you may have on your account. Unsure how to check for holds, click for directions.
