Due to COVID-19, our office has transitioned to remote advising. Our advisors will continue to support students by working remotely and we are unavailable for in-person or drop-in questions.
Please email your advisor if you have quick questions/concerns. Staff emails are found here: https://biology.uconn.edu/advising-staff/
Phone and virtual appointments are scheduled via NEXUS: https://nexus.uconn.edu/
Are you receiving an error message on Student Admin that all seats are reserved? Use the Dynamic Class Search to search for classes with open seats.
This online tool will help you view class availability and show you which class sections have unreserved and reserved seats for specific student populations (such as honors students or majors). Pay attention to the “unreserved available” column on the top right hand side for sections with open seats for any student (not reserved seats).
Summer Transfer Courses: If you are planning to take courses elsewhere during the summer, you must verify that these will transfer back to UConn and count towards your degree.
If you are taking summer classes at another institution in Connecticut, use this database to verify how credits will transfer.
If you are taking courses out-of-state, you must get prior course approval from Transfer Admissions. The approval process is completed through your Student Admin account.
**Make an appointment with your advisor to request a substitution if you have transfer credits in EEB, MCB, or PNB that can count towards the 24 credits in your major.
