College of Science Academic Advising

Our goal is to make your UAH experience a success!

We continue to work remotely. Email us at science.advising@uah.edu.

Your advisor will respond to you from science.advising@uah.edu to address your concerns.

If after a few interactions, a virtual meeting is appropriate, the advisor will offer you an appointment time.

Who is my advisor?


Where is my advisor located?

We're continuing to work remotely. Email us at science.advising@uah.edu.

Under normal circumstances, we are in the Materials Science Building MSB C206 campus map

How do I meet with an advisor?

Due to the current situation, we are advising students by email, scienceadvising@uah.edu.

When do I meet with my advisor?

You are required to see a College of Science advisor twice a year, once in the Fall and once in the Spring semester to review your academic plans, progress and goals.

  • Fall semester: Get advised in September or October.
  • Spring semester: Get advised in February or March, for Fall & Summer.

It’s beneficial to meet with an advisor prior to the start of registration.  For the exact dates registration opens, visit www.uah.edu/registrar/calendars.

Early advising = greater choice of appointment times.

What happens during an advising appointment?

During your advising appointment, you and the advisor:

  • Review your choice of major, minor, and concentration (if applicable).
  • Review your Degree Works evaluation, a self-serve advising tool available available at my.uah.edu.
  • Discuss the classes you need to take for the upcoming semester.
  • Create a plan that outlines the remainder of courses you need to take to complete your degree.
  • Discuss factors that might be impacting your academic career. Life outside of UAH can include work, family and financial needs. We can help you identify how to make your degree requirements mesh with your life demands.
  • Identify UAH academic and student affairs resources that you may find helpful, such as meeting with the Pre-Professional Advising or going to the Office of Financial Aid for questions about scholarships.  
  • Review CoS opportunities such as: Science Ambassadors, clubs, part-time job opportunities, and identifying how to contact professors to conduct research.
