Make an Appointment

Instructions for Current Students:

The College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources and the Ratcliffe Hicks School of Agriculture have two levels of advising:

  1. Faculty and staff in each department are the primary source of information regarding course selection, degree requirements, and career planning. Students should always contact their departmental advisor first. Some departmental advisors use an online appointment system, Nexus, while others prefer to schedule their appointments by email or phone.
  2. The Office of Academic Programs provides support to both departmental advisors and students. Students may meet virtually with a professional advisor if advised to do so by their departmental advisor. Appointments with professional advisors are scheduled online using Nexus. If you do not see any convenient times on the online appointment system, you may email a professional advisor to schedule an appointment.

Please contact your departmental advisor first before scheduling an appointment with a professional advisor.


Instructions for Non-UConn Students:

We strongly encourage prospective students and their families to visit the University and our College.  Please review how to arrange a visit to UConn and if you would like to speak virtually (Fall 2020) with an academic advisor in the College please email the Office of Academic Programs at to schedule an appointment with one of the advisors.
