What is Program Advising?
First-Generation advisors work with college advisors to support the success of first-year students. The program advisor monitors the transition into college life, academic progress, early alerts, and midterm grade reports. Students can make an appointment with an advisor through MyUK or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
What to expect?
First-generation advisors utilize a holistic approach, meaning every meeting is individualized to meet the individual students' needs. We go beyond the scope of academics. As a partnership, advisors, and students will create a personal plan of action and review campus resources. Advisors are seeking to conduct an early intervention to prevent any potential barriers/challenges a student may face. Advising meetings are an opportunity to create an advisor and student relationship that is sustained throughout a student's academic journey.
How to prepare?
Students should come prepared to engage in discussion about any immediate needs or questions as well as future goals.
8 a.m. - 5 p.m.
Student meetings are by appointment, with options to meet in person, virtually, or by phone. Drop-in services are available in person.
