Undergraduate Advising


CCJ Advisors provide academic and career advising throughout the academic year. During the month before registration and through the beginning of sophomore registration, advisors only advise for the next semester’s registration. Career and other academic advising appointments should be made outside of the registration advising windows. During the summer, advising is done by the College of Arts & Sciences advisors: https://as.ua.edu/student-services/make-an-appointment/
