Academic Advising

Academic advising at the University of Louisville is an ongoing, intentional, educational partnership dedicated to student academic success. The University is committed to an academic advising system that guides students to discover and pursue life goals, supports diverse and equitable educational experiences, advances students' intellectual and cultural development, and teaches students to become engaged, self-directed learners and competent decision makers.

Each individual undergraduate unit at the University offers quality academic advising services and has developed its own system for advising. This page provides information on how to find and contact your academic advisor based upon your unit of enrollment.
