Advisors use a wide range of tools to support student success. Tutorials and support materials are provided in the section below. In addition, bugs and feature requests are supported:
Any bugs or issues with tools should be reported to 24/7 Help Desk or with a technical issue ticket submitted to uaservice.arizona.edu that first identifies the application you are having issue with, and then describes the problem.
Input and recommendations on future features should for now be emailed to Meredith Aronson at email@example.com;for the Advising Dashboard, feature requests should go to Sarah Kyte at firstname.lastname@example.org.
