Advising

Academic Advising appointments are available online.  

Open Advising:   contact chemundergrad@umich.edu



 

Major Advising:

Major Advisors are available to provide advice on:
• the requirements for the different majors
• guidance on course selections
• guidance on the various careers open to students with chemistry or biochemistry degrees
• suitability of the various majors as a foundation for further professional training such as graduate or medical school.  

Major advisors have authority in exceptional circumstances to modify departmental requirements, but not College-level requirements.

There are three times when students are required to see advisors:

  1. To declare a major (the sooner the better)
  2. To file a major release form (usually first term senior year)
  3. To make any change in a major plan that would require an exception to be made to the course requirements.
