Academic Advising Information:

The Fulbright College Advising Center cares about your questions and well-being. We are here to support you!

 Our current space does not allow us to safely distance ourselves to reduce the risk of spreading COVID-19. After many considerations, we’ve decided that the best way to communicate with students in a safe, confidential way, is to offer remote advising via email, phone, or Teams. Here are some ways you can contact us:

Email your advisor directly 

(Click on the "Degree Audit" tile in UA Connect to find your advisor's contact information.)

Email our Fulbright main account at fcac@uark.edu

Call our main office at 479-575-3307

 We appreciate your understanding!
