UA Early College advisors are available to assist students with course selection based on their anticipated college major. Our advisors work specifically with UA Early College students. Students will schedule an advising appointment with their advisor each semester where they want to take a course in the upcoming semester. Advising appointments may be conducted online via Zoom or on campus. Parents are welcome to participate in the advising sessions with their student.
