Ask Your Advisor

Establishing a relationship with an academic advisor ensures that you are meeting your specific degree requirements and accomplishing your personal academic goals.

Welcome to academic advising. UNLV currently has 12 academic advising centers on campus each with their own unique approach to working with their majors. The executive director of academic advising at UNLV is responsible for the institutional objectives and general leadership of the academic advising centers on campus, as well as the promotion of the value and progress of academic advising at UNLV.

As a UNLV student, scheduling an appointment with an academic advisor is required for new students and highly recommended for transfer students. Establishing a relationship with an academic advisor ensures that you are meeting your specific degree requirements and accomplishing your personal academic goals. Have a look around and find answers to your questions. And remember, when in doubt, ask your advisor!
