How advising works:

The College of Arts, Languages & Letters (CALL) uses a Dual Advising model, in which students meet with experts in two areas: a “Major Advisor,” a faculty member located in the major department, and a “College Advisor,” a professional advisor in the Advising Center, the College’s main advising office.

Major Advisors assist with major requirements and major-related opportunities;
College Advisors assist with academic planning, academic progress, integrating degree requirements,  General Education, and graduation.

  •  Incoming students should schedule an appointment for Initial Advising in the Advising Center.
  • All students fulfill their Mandatory Academic Advising requirement by meeting with both Major and College Advisors each semester. Every AH student has an academic plan verified by both advisors.
  • Prospective students can meet with either a Major Advisor or a College Advisor.

  Advising Services

  • Academic Advising and Planning: Half-hour appointments in the Advising Center for a wide variety of advising needs.
  • Initial Advising: Hour-long appointments in the Advising Center for incoming freshmen, transfer students, and newly declared majors for an introduction and orientation to UHM, its resources, and degree requirements.
  • Academic Planning: Hour-long appointments in the Advising Center to individualize and verify the GPS plan in STAR.
  • Major Advising: Appointments with your Major Advisor in your major department to learn about major requirements and major-related  opportunities

Mandatory Advising: Mandatory advising varies by major.
