Taubman College

Academic Advising

The architecture program provides academic advising to current students at the University of Michigan and those enrolled at other colleges wishing to transfer into the undergraduate program. Students enrolled at UM are encouraged to discuss their academic plans with both their current academic advisor (through their home department) and with a Taubman College Student Services Representative. Students currently attending other universities and high school students interested in architecture are also encouraged to make an advising appointment with a Taubman College Student Services Representative.

You can schedule a visit online, email TaubmanCollegeStudentServices@umich.edu, or call 734-615-0431. Appointments are held Monday – Friday from 8:30 AM – 4:00 PM. All appointments are held at the Art and Architecture Building (Room 2150) on north campus and should be scheduled three business days in advance of desired meeting time. Please take bus/driving time into consideration when scheduling your appointment time. Those students with pre-scheduled appointments will be served first.

Undergraduate Architecture Advising

A faculty advisor is assigned to each student before orientation. Students are allowed to change their advisor with permission of the Chair at any time. Students also use many of the faculty as informal advisors. In addition, second- and third-year students are also great resources of knowledge about courses, campus, etc. Any programmatic or administrative course questions, including degree audits, must be directed to the college registrar.
