University Advising Center

A message regarding UAC operations during COVID-19: The University Advising Center continues to be fully operational during regular business hours (M-F, 8:30-5:00), but please note that beginning March 16, we will be conducting advising and other office operations remotely. Please schedule a virtual advising appointment with your advisor through our scheduling site and email advising@smu.edu with any questions.

The mission of the University Advising Center (UAC) is to partner with pre-major students as they take ownership of their academic experiences at SMU and develop independent informed decision-making skills.

All entering SMU students are assigned an advisor in the UAC. However, for students in the University Honors Program, and students majoring in the engineering and the fine arts (music, art, theatre, and dance), the UAC will provide specialized academic advising due mainly to the specific and rigorous academic demands of those programs. The UAC also provides students interested in the pre-health and pre-law programs with specialized pre-professional advising, which supplements the one-on-one relationship each student develops with his or her assigned advisor.
