University College Academic Advisors are available to provide individual advice and assistance to students. Your advisor will help you at every step throughout your degree program in areas such as:
- Identifying your degree requirements and options.
- Evaluating your transcripts.
- Identifying educational and financial services.
- Monitoring your progress.
- Assisting in considering career options.
- Making appropriate referrals to other campus offices.
As a part-time University College student, we encourage you to ask questions, gather information, and explore options so that you and your advisor can develop a meaningful academic plan. Advising appointments are available Monday-Thursday, 9 AM – 7 PM, and Friday, 9 AM – 4 PM.

The department or college offering the minor determines which classes are required. A complete list of all available minors appears in the Undergraduate Course Catalog. To formally declare the minor you must complete the Declaration of Minor form, obtain appropriate signatures, and UC students should return the form to UC for processing.
Petition to Faculty - The petition to faculty is used to request transfer credit to the major, substitution of a course for a requirement, and many other purposes. For more information, contact your UC academic advisor.
Independent Study, Experience Credit, and Internship Proposals - All students registering for individualized independent study, experience credit, and/or an internship must make arrangements with a faculty sponsor prior to registration.

The forms must have the signatures of the faculty sponsor, the chairperson of the department in which the student is taking the course, and the dean of the student’s primary college. The form must accompany registration. If you are a graduate student, you do not need your dean’s signature.

Certain courses may have associated fees.
During the fall and spring semesters, UC students should return the signed above-mentioned forms to UC.

Request for Incomplete Grade - The grade of “I” (incomplete) may be granted to a student only if it can be demonstrated that it would be unfair to hold the student to the normal limits of the course. Illness, job conflict, or other exceptional circumstances are the usual basis for consideration. To receive an incomplete, you must complete the Request for Incomplete Form and obtain appropriate signatures. The form represents a contract between you and the faculty member and specifies the reason for granting an incomplete and the conditions and time limit for removing it. The Request for Incomplete Form must be returned to UC for processing.
