We are here to help!
As Professional Advisors, our main role is to partner with students in their academic journey to degree completion. All of our advisors have advanced degrees and specialize in helping students navigate the college environment. Our services include academic goal setting, course selection, assisting with major and minor decisions, graduation planning, recommendation letters, and academic referrals. We build relationships with our students and partner with departments across campus to ensure that students have the answers they need.
Bryan Undergraduate Student Services uses Starfish to set up one-to-one appointments throughout the year. Starfish is a system that allows our students to have direct access to their advisor’s calendar for ease of scheduling appointments at any time for any reason.

How to Schedule an Advising Appointment
Your advisor’s primary responsibility is to assist you with course planning and selection, but advisors also help students identify and pursue academic, personal, and career goals. We know that these goals are often intertwined, so students are welcome to schedule appointments to talk with advisors about these more involved matters.
Accessing and reviewing your Degree Works evaluation with your advisor is the best first step towards setting and evaluating your goals. We depend on you to be proactive in defining your goals and to ask for assistance whenever it is needed. You are strongly encouraged to discuss your academic goals with your advisor regularly to stay on track.
As a Bryan School student, you are assigned a professional advisor according to your last name. Your individual advisor is always listed on your degree work report in UNCGenie.
