Assigned Advisor


How to view your assigned advisor

A student's assigned advisor can be viewed through myKU. Navigate to the My Progress page and select the Academic Tab to view all of the student's assigned advisor(s).

Some departments have shared advising responsibilities rather than one specific advisor.  If you do not see a specific advisor name at this location, you can find additional information about your department's advising team here.
