First-Year Students

In your first semester at UNCA, your advisor will be the faculty member who is teaching your 178 First-Year Seminar course.

During your first semester, you will be contacted via email about your intended major / your major area of interest. Our office will assign you a faculty advisor in that area, but please note that this does not mean that you have declared a major. When you are ready to declare your major, please use this form, and note that some departments have specific requirements and prerequisites before you can declare. Check the University Catalog for more information.

After your first semester, if you are unsure about what you want your major to be, you will be assigned a staff advisor in the Academic Success Center.
