Your Academic Advising Dean in the College of Arts and Sciences can advise you on academic matters, help you to think broadly about your long-term plans, and connect you to the appropriate support services at the University. 

Your Advising Dean is committed to your academic success throughout your UVA experience. 

To schedule a meeting with your Advising Dean, call the Undergraduate Advising Office at (434) 924-3351 or visit 101 Monroe Hall (M-F, 8-5). 

Also, every weekday that classes are in session, the College hosts drop-in Dean of the Day Zoom advising hours from 2:30-4:00pm.
