Important Updates from Student Services for the Spring 2021 Semester

  • January 12th, 2021

The Student Services team at the Culverhouse College of Business is here to help you via face-to-face or Zoom-scheduled appointments during the 2021 spring term. 

Your academic advisors will be available to answer your questions and help you prepare for the summer and/or fall term 2021 semesters using some familiar tools.

Here is what you can expect:

  • The primary approach for Academic Advising in spring 2021 will be either to schedule face-to-face or Zoom advising appointments.  You must call (205) 348-4537 to schedule Zoom or face-to-face appointments.  Do this early in the spring term of 2021 to be ready for registration.
  • Should you have a “quick question”, a virtual “On-Call” format is in place.
  • Culverhouse “Student Support Resources” site is available to show you where to find support this semester.
  • Express Schedule preparation will be available each week.  A select team of Academic Advisors will be available to get your schedule in order.  Please be looking at your e-mail for when these sessions will be scheduled. You can find your academic advisor in our advisor directory.

As a Culverhouse student, you must meet with an academic advisor before you will be able to register for summer and/or fall classes. Call 205-348-4537 to schedule an appointment via Zoom.
