Welcome to the Advisement Center

A&S Advisement during COVID

In an effort to keep everyone safe during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, we are conducting advising appointments and workshops virtually.

Your A&S advisors are here for you during this difficult time. We ask that you schedule a 30-minute appointment through LoboAchieve to talk with us. Unfortunately, we cannot currently accommodate walk-in appointments.

Please indicate the following in your appointment request:

  1. Method of Appointment
    1. Zoom (preferred) - We recommend that you download Zoom. Your advisor will send a Zoom link to your UNM email prior to your scheduled appointment.
    2. Phone Call - Provide your phone number. Your advisor will call this number at your scheduled appointment time, sometimes from a blocked number.

  2.  Reason for Appointment
    Please provide a brief explanation of your reasons for visiting your advisor. This might be something like:
    - Holds on account
    - Class schedule
    - Registration questions
    - Any other reason you might need to see your advisor

Questions about your classes?
Contact your instructor or TA for any questions relating to specific courses you are taking, including if there will be a virtual component and any expectations around that.

Workshops and Department Orientations
- Online versions of the Graduation Planning Workshop and New Student Learning Workshop with accompanying instructions will be sent to your UNM email.

- Your advisor will email you regarding your Department Orientation when it becomes available. You will see an associated hold on your account.

For more information on UNM's COVID-19 procedures and plans, please visit bringbackthepack.unm.edu. 

If you have any questions, please contact your advisor or our front desk at asadvise@unm.edu.

We are here for you and we look forward to speaking with you soon.

Sincerely,

The Arts & Sciences Advisement Center
