Academic Advising

Please Note: We are currently not taking walk-in or in-person advising appointments until the Summer 2024 quarter.

At Astronomy & Astrophysics Academic Advising, we can assist you with:

  • Educational planning and goal setting
  • Understanding major requirements
  • Navigating academic policies and procedures

Appointments to discuss a major, double major, or minor in A&A, and/or to do personalized quarter-by-quarter planning will first be available starting in Summer 2024.

To request an appointment, please contact our department via the Virtual Advising Center (VAC) after June 30th, provide a week's worth of availability (Monday through Friday 9am to 3pm only), and indicate which program you're interested in (B.A. vs B.S. or the minor) to schedule an appointment.
