Our office's services are a bit different than those you receive through your Primary Advisor. We are here to provide you with:

  • Academic programming for orientation sessions;
  • Advising assistance;
  • Tutoring assistance;
  • Academic counseling, which offers the support you need to help you achieve academic success; and
  • Testing Services (e.g., ACT, SAT, PRAXIS) for the University and the community.

If you would like an appointment with an advisor, please call 256-765-4722 and let tell the person with whom you would like to schedule an advising appointment. Please use the links below to find the information you need or stop by our office and let us help you.
