Advisor appointments are available in-person, by phone and by Skype. Students who wish to discuss detailed or complex topics (such as registration planning, lifting advisor holds, declaring majors, etc) should schedule an appointment. For appointments with Dean Lee May, Dean Alice Dawson or Dean Marilyn Wyrick, please call the Academic Advising office at (919) 966-5116.
Drop-in hours are available for quick meetings. They are held in all divisions, Monday through Friday, 11 AM to 12 Noon and 2 PM to 4 PM.
Drop-ins are intended for brief guidance on matters such as withdrawing, dropping/adding, course approval forms, and other topics that can be handled in five-to-ten minute sessions. You can see how busy we are by checking the drop-in queue online (select the division you’d like to view on the drop down list).
Every student is assigned an academic advisor upon entering UNC-CH. You can find out who your advisor is by logging into ConnectCarolina and looking on the right side of your Student Center page for your advisor’s name. However, you are welcome to see any of our advisors at any time.
Since advisors develop specific knowledge about the majors/minors in their division, it is best to select an advisor in the division of your major. If you have two majors that are not in the same division, you may want to see a different advisor for each major.
Students wanting advice on law school, medical school and graduate school can also seek guidance from the Office of Graduate and Pre-Professional Advising (located in Hanes Hall, Second Floor)
For urgent personal or family issues that directly affect the ability to attend classes or to complete course work, first come to a drop-in session. You may then need to follow up with an appointment with an advisor or dean, as appropriate. Please note that missed deadlines with no extenuating circumstances are not considered emergencies. If you have missed a deadline, please schedule an appointment or utilize drop-in hours.
