Undergraduate Advising/Student Services

Associate Dean for Student Services and Certification: Dr. Emily Sims

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 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).
