About Academic Advising

Academic advising is integral to fulfilling the teaching and learning mission of the University of Kentucky. Through academic advising, students learn to become members of the UK community, to think critically about their roles and responsibilities as students, and to prepare to be educated citizens of the global community. Our Wildcat Advisors are far more than academic planners, as they provide critical and personalized support for our students, both inside and outside of the classroom.
