The Asa H. Bean Undergraduate Student Services Center ("Student Services") was established in 1976. Today, we employ a team of 19 that includes 9 academic advisors, and 1 advising specialist (online)  who work with our undergraduate population on a term by term basis involving one-on-one interactions through scheduled 30-minute academic advising appointments, daily on-call sessions, and specialized group signature sessions held during peak advising times. Before and after students declare their majors, we partner with them in learning about opportunities inside and outside in and out of the classroom to enhance their college experience, and build a strong competitive resume while enrolled in the Culverhouse College of Commerce.

To our current, future, and prospective students: we look forward to working with you on your academic and professional plan over the next four years. Please review the links to the left that provide additional information on advising, internships, education abroad and much more. 

Remember, you have an entire team here to help you achieve your goal.  We recognize that you are an individual and therefore encourage you to take intellectual risks while developing relationships with faculty and staff mentors who can support you as you pursue your academic opportunities at The University of Alabama.
