Steps to Advising:

Step 1: Students should first try to see a peer advisor in Totman 145. Students do not need to schedule an appointment. More information can be found in the Peer Advising Drop-In Center section below.

Step 2: Students can also make an appointment with the Academic Advisor via the "Book an Appointment" link under the Undergraduate Academic Advisor section below. If you are not a Kin major, the book an appointment link will not work, so you can email her at leclerc@umass.edu.

Step 3: If a student has an emergency they should email the Undergraduate Program Director Tom St. Laurent, tstlaurent@kin.umass.edu. His office is Totman 109.
