Academic Advising

Advising is not just about course selection – it’s about goals, having an advocate, and getting the most out of college.

Seeing your academic advisor is key to your success here at UNL. Forensic Science employs a professional academic advisor in addition to our faculty.

Please see your advisor at least once a semester although you are encouraged to visit more often!

How to Prepare for an Advising Session
  1. Schedule an Appointment

    Schedule an appointment. Your advisor will be more prepared for your meeting if you schedule an appointment instead of walking in. Students can schedule on the Student Success Hub.

  2. Identify Questions

    Identify questions you may have before you come in for your appointment.

  3. Identify Classes

    Use the Undergraduate Catalog to identify some class choices based on degree requirements, major requirements and your own interests.

  4. Run Degree Audit

    Review your recently run degree audit on MyRED and even bring a copy to the session if you wish.

  5. Show Up

    Show up for your appointment, or let your advisor know in advance if you can’t make it.

  6. Special Needs

    Let your advisor know about any special needs, deficiencies, or other issues that might affect your academic success.

  7. Ask Questions

    Ask for clarification if you don’t understand something. Your advisor will be more than happy to go over something again.
