Academic advising is a critical step to achieving your Natural Resources and Environmental Science degree. Meet with your faculty advisor regularly to make sure you are on track and taking advantage of the resources available to you in NRES

Advising Instructions

  • Schedule an appointment with your faculty advisor at least once a semester. Scheduling an advising appointment is easy through myUK. The Appointment Scheduler feature is located under the myInfo tab on student view of myUK; under Advising Services tab>Appointment Scheduler in advisor view. If your advisor does not have any available appointment times on myUK contact them directly to make an appointment. If you do not know who your advisor is check myUK or stop by N24-Agricultural Sciences Center North Bldg.
  • Before your advising appointment study the NRES course requirements.  Use the “Degree Planning” tools in MyUK-GPS to make a tentative class schedule and share it with your advisor. Being prepared will make your advising appointment much more productive.
  • During your meeting discuss your academic goals and subject interests.  Be honest about any struggles you may be experiencing.  Your advisor can help you find on campus resources and pick the right class to help you succeed.  At the end of your appointment remind your faculty advisor to lift your academic hold. You will not be able to register without an advisor lifting your academic advising hold! (Be sure you don't have other holds on your myUK.)
  • After your meeting check myUK to determine when you can register for classes. All students are assigned a priority registration window to register. If you cannot find this information, check in the Student Success Center (N24 Ag. Science North). If you miss this window, you will have to wait until everyone else has registered. If you miss the second window, you will have to late register during add/drop.

The Schedule of Classes should be available on myUK around mid-October for winter or spring terms and mid-March for summer or fall terms.
