Meet the UConn Hartford Advising Team

The UConn Hartford Advising Team supports undergraduate students studying in a variety of degree programs. The integration of the social, academic, and career development of the student is the central focus and drive behind our office. We aim to provide an environment that empowers students to reach their academic, personal, and professional goals. 

Who is my advisor?

You can find your advisor’s name and contact information in Student Admin, by clicking “Academic Progress & Advising,” and then “Advisor.”

How do I schedule an appointment with my advisor?

  • Some schedule appointments via e-mail, while others use the Nexus system.
  • You can schedule an appointment with your specific advisor using the links down below.

What should I discuss with my advisor?

Who else can answer my questions?

If your advisor is unsure about specific requirements or regulations, s/he will likely direct you to your School or College advising center. These offices are also able to answer questions about such matters as substitutions, excess credit, late drops, academic probation and dismissal. No single advisor has expertise in all the areas a student may wish to explore.
  • Students should consult with a wide range of faculty and staff who may be able to advise them on the many opportunities available, such as education abroad, research, internships, careers, and graduate school.
  • See Academic and Other Support and Opportunities for further information.
