Find Your Advisor

The College academic advising system utilizes an array of specialty advisors to make sure that you are getting the proper help when choosing your academic path. Once you’ve declared your major or minor, a team of advisors typically including a faculty member from your department and a full-time professional advisor will be there to help you. Refer to Jayhawk GPS or our list of advisors below if you are unsure of who your advisor is or would like to meet with an advisor to explore a different major or minor.

How to View your Assigned Advisor(s)

A student's assigned advisor can be viewed through Jayhawk GPS. You will log in with your Single-Sign-On KU Log-In. Some departments have shared advising responsibilities, rather than one specific advisor. If you do not see a specific advisor name at this location, you can find additional information about your department's advising team below.
