Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs

A&S’s Office of Undergraduate Academic Affairs (OUAA) combines the work of academic advising plus fellowships and scholarships. With continued consultation with faculty, we offer comprehensive support for students across the spectrum of advising, from matriculation to post-graduate fellowships. We also provide support for faculty advisors and help connect students with resources across campus.
