Individualized Academic Advising

As a student in the UST Program, you will be assigned a professional academic advisor who will work with you until you declare a major. You are encouraged to meet with your advisor throughout the semester for academic planning, major guidance and for course selection during registration. Advising appointments can cover topics such as:  how to research majors, where to look for organizations, how to deal with a difficult roommate and everything in between. You can choose the level of involvement you want to have with your academic advisor. Some students see their advisor on an ongoing basis and check in regularly while others prefer to meet with their advisor only with specific academic questions. We recommend that you connect with your advisor at least once each semester to discuss courses for the upcoming semester.

We offer a variety of ways to obtain advisement throughout the year including e-mail, walk-in hours and by appointment.

E-mail Advisement: For general inquiries, feel free to review the FAQs on our website or e-mail us at ust-advise@udel.edu.

Walk-in Advisement: For basic questions or assistance, such as obtaining signatures for transfer credit or other forms, quick questions about credits or course choices, requests for excused absences, etc., you are welcome to stop by the Center for Academic Success in 148-150 S. College Ave. during walk-in hours.

Walk-in hours for Spring, 2017 are as follows:     

Wednesdays and Fridays, 9:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.

Mondays – Fridays, 1:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.

Advising Appointments: If your questions are a bit more specific and you would like to be certain you have plenty of time to discuss them, you should schedule an appointment online with your Advisor using the Blue Hen Success Collaborative (BHSC).  Appointments are usually necessary for academic planning, major selection, study abroad, internships or service learning questions, and graduation analysis.
