UB is offering a full range of advising services during the COVID-19 situation. Students can schedule an appointment online through the Student Success Portal, and call or email their advisor/advising center directly for assistance. We look forward to working with you virtually!
Student Success Portal
Students can use the Student Success Portal, UB’s online appointment scheduling platform, to make appointments with advisors and connect with resources and support campus-wide.
To provide students with accurate information and needed assistance, designated university staff and faculty have access to the Student Success Portal. Students should use caution when sharing sensitive, personal information, particularly via email.
ATTENTION NEW STUDENTS! If this will be your first UB semester, consult Orientation, Transition and Parent Programs for information about when your academic advising unit will start your course registration process.
When are advising offices available for appointments?
Most advising centers offer appointments Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
When should I email or call my advisor instead of scheduling an appointment?
You can pose a quick question directly to your advisor via email or phone. Please allow up to two business days for a response. If necessary, your advisor will instruct you to schedule an advising appointment.
I want to change my major but I do not see the new department in the portal to schedule my appointment. What should I do?
If you are unable to access an advising center in your Student Success Portal, utilize the Advising Directory to find the new department’s contact information. You may contact the new department by phone, email, through their website or by an in-person visit to inquire about applying to/changing your major and scheduling an advising appointment.
I have changed my major and want to schedule an advising appointment. The Student Success Portal gives me the option to schedule with my previous advising center or my new advising center. What should I do?
Schedule your appointment with your new advising center. Note: If your major change was processed in your HUB Student Center today, please give the Student Success Portal one day to update.
I am a prospective UB student. Can I use the Student Success Portal to schedule my advising appointment?
Only students admitted to UB can use the Student Success Portal to schedule an advising appointment. Consult the Advising Directory for contact information and further information.
