The College of Education is committed to providing effective advising services to you as an essential component of your educational experience. Our goal as advisors is to offer individualized, course-specific, and general academic assistance for all students. We strive to engage students through a holistic partnership focused on personalized educational and professional goals.  Please e-mail edustudentservices@ua.edu or call 205-348-6073 to set up an appointment.

Students will be notified via e-mail regarding advising procedures for each semester. Students are responsible for making an appointment with an advisor during the advising period of a semester (March and October). An advisor will work with the student in planning courses for the upcoming semester(s).

After advising, the student must return the signed registration form to 104 Carmichael. An advisor will release a student’s registration hold enabling the student to complete registration through myBama.

There are several ways to schedule an appointment. You may email edustudentservices@ua.edu or call 205-348-6073 to set up a time for a phone or in person appointment. You may also visit “Ask an Advisor” and ask specific questions about your program, or set up an advising time. All advising sessions will occur between the normal business hours of 8:00 – 4:45.

The Office of Student Services and Certification (SSC) coordinates advising, certification, and clinical experiences for students.
