Times To See an Academic Advisor
- Every fall semester, some majors require academic advising prior to registration. Watch your UM-Dearborn email for registration hold information and how to be released from hold to register.
- Once a year to make sure you are planning accordingly
30 minute appointments are available daily. Call (313) 593-5293 or stop by 1039 CB to schedule. During peak advising and registration times, and the beginning of each semester, the advising office moves to walk-in advising hours. When offered, these advising sessions are available to students on a first-come, first-served basis. Quick question may be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org .
Additionally, CASL Faculty Major Advisors are available. Click here for faculty list.
