Due to continuing concerns regarding COVID-19, the College of Communication and Information Sciences will continue our temporary academic advising model.

Tisch Student Services and External Relations will be serving all C&IS undergraduate students, including upperclassmen, through the summer. We have developed an e-advising form that will allow us to serve you from a distance and still ensure that you continue to receive quality guidance for your upcoming registration. In addition to the form, Zoom meetings with an advisor are also available.

Students can access the e-advising form here. Upon completion, the form will be sent to one of the professional advisors for review and students will receive an email reply within 3-5 business days.

If the advisor needs to speak with you, they will work with you to schedule a Zoom appointment. Please email tischstudentserv@ua.edu or call 205-348-8599 during normal business hours to schedule a phone appointment. Face-to-face advising appointments will continue to be done virtually.

During this time, C&IS remains committed to supporting our students. In doing so, we are working with other campus support services (Student Health Center, Counseling Center, etc.) to familiarize ourselves with their continuity plan so we can make effective referrals.

Students, parents, faculty and staff can stay updated on The University of Alabama’s responses to the COVID-19 outbreak by visiting The University’s Health Information page.

We will continue to update our C&IS community as the situation changes and we appreciate your patience and understanding during this time.
