Gain Support for Academic Success

Academic advising is a dynamic relationship between advisor and student to support the student’s educational and career success throughout all stages of the university experience. An advisor will meet with you to understand your personal and professional goals and concerns. During your initial session, a personalized pre-enrollment degree plan will be prepared to guide you on your pathway to a Bachelor of Arts or Science in Professional Studies (BPS). The University of Alabama in Huntsville offers a variety of support services to assist students in achieving academic success. Services include tutoring, personal counseling, career services, and more.
