Undergraduate Advising

Current Animal Science Students:

For school year 2024-2025, we will be meeting with students in a combination of set appointment times with Alicia Schneider or Aimee Shasteen as well as through express advising.

Please remember you can drop by express advising either in-person or online via Zoom. If you are on the Zoom link for a period of time, just remember we may have students in front of you either virtually or in-person so please be patient.

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.
