Faculty members are sometimes asked to advise students informally on completing their course of study. If you believe you need access to the advising functions in the myUCF Portal, speak with your department chair.
Faculty members with questions about advising procedures or degree requirements should turn to their College Advising Office for assistance.
Faculty roles as advisors may include:
See the page on Advisor Procedures for tutorials on how to perform specific advising functions.
Once students declare a major, they work exclusively with the advising office in their college. This office is also the first point of contact for faculty members with questions on degree requirements or advising procedures.
The individual advising offices mentioned above are represented at a university committee called the Academic Advising Council (AAC), which meets several times per semester to address advising concerns at the university.
See this page for other resources for faculty advisors, as provided by the National Academic Advising Association (NACADA).
