Undergraduate Advisors

You will begin your advising process by meeting with a peer advisor who will help you understand the Interdisciplinary Studies program and declare your major. Once you have declared an Interdisciplinary Studies major, you will be able to meet with a staff advisor. Please read the Advising Protocols page so that you know what to expect and can get the most benefit from your advising sessions. We greatly look forward to helping you achieve your goals.

Please contact the Interdisciplinary Studies Office to make an advising appointment by calling 407-823-0144 or stopping by the Classroom Building, Suite 302. You may also e-mail us at is@ucf.edu to make an advising appointment. Please include your full name, PID, phone number, and purpose of the advising appointment along with times and days when you are generally available.
