When to see an Academic Advisor

Times To See an Academic Advisor

  • Orientation
  • 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 casl-advising@umd.umich.edu .
