All students at UNK are assigned an academic advisor in the department of their major to work with as they proceed through their academic program. New students are assigned an advisor early in their first semester. Students not declaring a major will be advised through the Academic & Career Services office, or work with another staff or faculty advisor who primarily advises "Deciding" students.
Advisors are initially assigned based on the needs and preferences of the academic department. As students become familiar with their academic program and faculty members, they may request an advisor of their choice.
Students wishing to declare a major, add a minor or endorsement, change a major, change advisors, or change their program of study in any way, must contact the Academic & Career Services to do so. A new advisor will be assigned at that time if appropriate. The office is in MSAB 140 and the telephone number is 865-8501.
We can also assist you in selecting a major or information regarding different career opportunities.
