Summer Academic Advising

Ready to prepare for registration? We are here to help you!

  • All new Spiders are assigned a Peer Academic Advisor (PA). PAs are well-trained student-staff members of the Academic Advising Resource Center (AARC) who will be in contact with you via email and phone throughout the summer. You can expect to begin hearing from them in mid-June, so be sure to check your Richmond email for important messages from them!
  • In addition to working with a PA this summer, you will also receive help from a dedicated faculty or staff academic advisor. Your Summer Advisor will reach out to you in July to help finalize your fall course choices and answer any last minute questions. Be sure to read the Plan and Register section of this website and become familiar with the information you will need for registration.
  • Students who still have concerns or questions after they have talked with their PA and Summer Advisor are encouraged to call the Academic Advising Resource Center (AARC). The AARC can also help you choose courses, walk you through the registration process, and answer any questions you might have. AARC staff members are available Monday through Friday from 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (ET). Students who visit campus during the summer are especially encouraged to drop into the AARC office to say, "Hi!"

Have a specific question? 

We have faculty and staff advisors available all summer in a few key areas that past experience has shown to generate the most questions. Such topics include pre-business, pre-health, and language placement. The following contact list should help you get some of your questions answered. If not, let us know!
