Upon receiving an acceptance letter to UACCM, new students will need to attend an appointment with an academic advisor in Academic Advising and Career Services. During a new student's first advising appointment, he/she will discuss their major and the required courses to complete their degree then the advisor will help create an academic plan and register the student for their first semester classes. Each following semester, students will meet with their individually-assigned academic advisors to review their plans and register for classes.
Advising/registration dates for fall and summer semesters are posted beginning in March, and spring semester dates are posted beginning in October.
All advising appointments may be made online through Appointment Plus. Students may also call or drop by the Academic Advising and Career Services center to make an appointment. Students will have the option to attend their advising appointment in person, by phone, or virtually using an online service (link provided by advisor.) Special "walk-in/call-in" registration dates allow students to call or drop by the Academic Advising and Career Services center without making an appointment on a first-come, first-served basis. Academic Advising and Career Services is located in the Business Technology Center, Room 200.
Tips and Resources for Academic Advising
It is always best if you have an idea of your planned major. Tip: view UACCM's degree plans before your appointment.
If you plan to transfer to a 4-year college or university, it is helpful to know the major and course requirements for your major there. Tip: Use the Arkansas Course Transfer System to check transferability of courses.
Students are placed in classes their first semester based on ACT, ACCUPLACER, and COMPASS scores. Visit the Course Placement Scores page to see where you place.
To view the class schedule prior to advising, you can access the schedule here. Most classes are offered on a Monday, Wednesday, and Friday schedule or on a Tuesday and Thursday schedule. We also offer online, hybrid, and evening classes.
