Undergraduate Advising

Current Animal Science Students:

For school year 2023-20024, we will be meeting with students in a combination of set appointment times with Katelyn Jones-Hamlow, Alicia Schneider, or Aimee Shasteen or Express Advising.

Students should always schedule appointments with their assigned advisor. You can find advising assignments by UIN here. If you schedule an appointment with an advisor you are not assigned to without permission ahead of time, we will cancel your appointment.

Please remember you can drop by express advising either in-person on virtually. If you are on the virtual link for a period of time, just remember we may have students in front of you either virtually or in-person. Just hang out.

You may also send your question to our advising email ( Advising matters should only be sent to ANSCadvising, not advisor's personal emails. This ensures the most timely response.

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.
