Advisor contact information is in our directory


Schedule a skype appointment with advisors through the online scheduling system. For these kinds of appointments, be sure to use a wired internet connection (not wireless) and send the advisor a contact request before your scheduled meeting time.


Call the Academic Advising Program office to speak with a staff member regarding general questions and urgent situations Monday – Friday 8:00am – 5:00pm (except University Holidays). Main number: (919) 966-5116.
Call your advisor using the number provided in our directory with specific questions. Keep in mind that advisors are often busy meeting with students during the day, so you will likely need to leave a voicemail. Be sure to include your name, PID, and phone number when leaving a voicemail.

Phone appointments are available through the online scheduling system. If your advisor does not answer, it is best to leave a voicemail as they may be wrapping up a previous appointment. If you still cannot get in contact, call the Academic Advising Program office and a staff member will assist.”


Use the chat service to ask general questions about academic policies and procedures. Advisors are available on chat Monday through Friday from 3:00pm to 4:00pm. Chat is not secure, so we cannot provide personalized advising based on your student records over chat.

NOTE:  If you do not see a "chat now" icon on the bottom right, then the service is not currently staffed.

Advising Peers

Advising Peers are a great way to get help from fellow UNC students. Meet with them by asking for an Advising Peer when you come to drop-ins. Peers can help give you a general student perspective, and they can help explain resources and policies on campus.
Advising Peer availability:

  • Hardin Hub Monday-Thursday, 4-6:30pm
  • Steele: Monday-Thursday, 2-3:30pm
