The University Exploration & Advising Center (UEAC) is a division of the Office of Undergraduate Education and reports to the Assistant Vice Provost for Advising & Academic Services. The UEAC team works with students across all colleges and schools to explore and transition into a variety of academic paths.  These Campus Advising Specialists partner with all advising teams on campus and work with first-year students in particular who are admitted to A&S but do not plan to pursue a field of study there to explore all of their the options the campus offers and to discover and then engage with the college or school that offers the best academic path.

The unit primarily serves students specifically assigned to UEAC advisors but also offers ad hoc advising support for prospective students interested in coming to CU and to current students transferring between colleges on the Boulder campus. Any student who is exploring or transitioning is welcome to drop by and have a conversation with UEAC staff.  The UEAC is located in Regent Hall 1B29.

Advising Centers

There are several advising centers across the Boulder campus, primarily housed in colleges and schools. Academic advisors are professional staff or faculty members who have an expertise in navigating the entire curriculum and in developing mentoring relationships with students.
