Biology Advising Information

Students who have officially declared a human biology major should meet regularly with a human biology advisor, ideally once a semester.  Exploring students who go to the Undergraduate Advising Center (UAC) for advising also are invited to meet with a human biology advisor, particularly to draft a degree completion plan and to discuss major course details and career options. 

How to Make an Advising Appointment

Our team of advisors can help you understand the human biology major, your KU Core requirements, and assist you in selecting courses to complete your degree. Our advisors can also direct you to campus resources and offices to help you succeed at KU.  

To determine your assigned advisor, please login to Jayhawk GPS. You can view information on how to schedule an appointment on the Jayhawk GPS Student Resources page
