Academic advising for sophomores, juniors and seniors is generally provided by faculty and professional advisers within the school or college where their major resides. Students in foundation programs such as Business Foundation, Art Foundation or Lower-division Social Work are continuously advised by University Academic Advising until their successful admission into upper-division standing. Students in pre-nursing, pre-clinical laboratory sciences, pre-clinical radiation sciences and pre-dental hygiene are continuously advised by pre-health advisers in UAA until their successful admission to a professional program or transition into parallel majors.
