All About Advising Appointments

Can We Advise You?

All Undecided and Pre-Unit students are required to meet with their Exploratory & Transition Advisor each semester, but any undergrad at UofL can make an appointment with us at any time.

We're happy to help you if you're in any of these situations:

  • you're questioning your current major
  • you have become undecided
  • you want to talk about getting admitted to a major in a different school or college at UofL (for example, switching from Nursing to Business)
  • you're a returning student and not sure what major to pursue

Orientation Advising

At Orientation, we’ll meet with you to help you plan and register for your first semester’s classes. Before Orientation, we recommend exploring our orientation info page. If you want to learn more about how to register for classes, you can do that on our registration resources page.
If you missed your orientation advising appointment, check your UofL email for a new appointment invitation. You can also email or call 502.852.7969 for help.

If you need to reschedule your orientation advising appointment, email or call 502.852.7969 for help.

How to Make an Appointmentmake an appointment call 502.852.7969

If you have an Exploratory & Transition advisor as your assigned advisor, you will often receive an email from them when it's time to schedule your advising appointment for the semester. Sign up early and get your advising hold removed before priority registration! You can also log into CardSmart to see your assigned advisor and schedule an appointment with them.

If you are a prospective student, transfer student, or a student at UofL without an Exploratory advisor, just call 502.852.7969 or stop by our front desk in the Belknap Academic Building to schedule an appointment with an Exploratory & Transition advisor.
