College-level advising

A student receives college-level advising within LAS

The LAS Student Academic Affairs Office supports the academic, personal, and professional development of every student. Through academic advising, we promote inclusive dialogue, recognize diverse experiences, encourage students to design their life and career, and to take responsibility for their success. 

Meet our Student Academic Affairs leadership team.

 

College-level advising in response to COVID-19

Although the LAS Student Academic Affairs Office is not available for walk-ins, we are ready to assist you. 

  • If you would like to speak with a specific college-level advisor, please make an appointment. Select “LAS Student Academic Affairs Advising,” “LAS AAP Advising,” “LAS International Programs,” "LAS Career Development" or “LAS Honors.”
  • If you have time between 1 pm and 5 pm Monday through Friday and would like to speak with a dean or advisor, add your name to our virtual advising queue. You will then receive a Zoom meeting invitation from one of our staff and will have five minutes to accept that invitation. If you select a phone call option, an advisor will call you. 
  • If you have a question that isn't urgent or you don't have the tools or time for a Zoom meeting, you may send a message to las-studentoffice@illinois.edu. It may take up to three business days to respond, given the high volume of virtual communications we are experiencing.

Campus resources

The Student Assistance Center in the Office of the Dean of Students is continuing with virtual operations, 8:30 am to 5 pm, Monday through Friday. After 5  pm and on weekends, the Emergency Dean is available.
