Meet Your Expert, Caring Advisor
Selecting classes, internships, and study abroad experiences are just a few of the many important decisions you’ll make as you progress through your degree. Your Plant Sciences major academic advisor is eager to connect you to these experiences and stay on track to graduate on time.
Your academic advisor is your educational advocate, academic policy interpreter, curriculum specialist, and information hub—essentially your go-to contact before, during, and after your time at the University of Arizona. Together, you and your academic advisor:
- develop a plan based on your career and life goals,
- explore leadership opportunities, student clubs, and campus jobs,
- discuss campus resources, including learning centers, tutoring, cultural centers, and involvement activities,
- review the latest internships, scholarships, awards, and essential college information, and
- ensure you graduate on time with the right mix of skills and experiences to help you land a great job or get into a graduate program.
