We’re here to serve and support your academic, personal, and professional goals. Through personalized advising and diverse experiential learning opportunities, our staff and faculty members are committed to your success! We’re happy to answer any questions you may have.

Undergraduate Advising

Current Animal Science Students:

Ways to contact an advisor include scheduling appointments, attending express advising hours, and via our advising email ( Advising matters should only be sent to ANSCadvising, not advisor's personal emails. This ensures the most timely response.

Beginning in Fall 2024, you will be assigned a primary academic advisor. Please only schedule appointments with your advisor unless you are experiencing an emergency and need to see the first available advisor. You can find your assigned advisor next to your UIN at (link coming soon). 

Non-ANSC Students:

If you are seeking Animal Sciences advising help or ICT information, you are welcome to schedule an appointment with the first available advisor or email with questions.
