Gaining Access to Advising Systems

Access to the following systems must be individually requested, and in some cases training is required before full usage rights are provided. Your supervisor may initiate some of these access requests for you, but you can also begin the processes yourself.

Advisor Notes allows advisors to record interactions with students that can be seen by all other advisors on campus. This tool is especially helpful as students change majors and move from advisor to advisor. To gain access to this feature of UAccess Student, an advisor needs to obtain permission from his/her department head and attend the Academic Advising Basics training. The advisor’s supervisor must make a request through the UAccess Access Provisioning Tool: http://uaccess.arizona.edu/

On occasion an advising note is inadvertently entered into the incorrect student record. Advisors cannot delete notes themselves and must submit a deletion request to their UAAC Representative or College Coordinator with  the note id, the student name and the date of the note entry. Upon notification, the Director of the ARC deletes the incorrect note.  The advisor is responsible for entering the note into the correct student record.

Service Indicators

Service Indicators allow advisors to assign positive or negative designation indicators to a student. Negative Service Indicators assigned to a student can prevent the student from accessing services such as transcripts or class enrollment.  To gain access to this feature of UAccess Student, an advisor needs to obtain permission from his/her department head and complete a Service Indicators Add/Remove training session.
