ADVISING

The Department urges all its majors to go to the Undergraduate Advisor, Greg Keller, for consultation once a semester. This advice is meant to help you devise a good curriculum, and to prevent making mistakes in course selection.

Greg Keller's contact information:
Office: 3276 SES
E-mail: gkeller1@uic.edu
Phone: 312-996-4646 

Students can also schedule an appointment with Mr. Keller in person by going to 3268/3272 SES. Appointments are required for M, W-F. Walk-in advising occurs on Tuesdays from 9:30-noon & 1:00-3:30, (but no DARS review/course planning during walk-in advising).

Mr. Keller also provides advising for Physics, Chemistry and Biochemistry (and so is quite busy! and is housed in the Biology Dept. The phone is answered by a Biology department secretary or work study students, so don’t be alarmed when you are told you’ve reached the Dept of Biological Sciences. Just say that you want to make an appointment with Greg Keller, and the person who answers will work with you to find an opening in his calendar and schedule the appointment.

If you are having trouble scheduling a time with Mr. Keller, please see Prof. Roy Plotnick, the Director of Undergraduate Studies (DUS). Prof. Plotnick can also provide advice and information on graduate schools, careers, and internships.

The best time for advising is by the twelfth week of the semester, after you have received your Advance Registration materials. To successfully comply with the College and EaES requirements is sometimes difficult. Avoid surprises during your Senior year by seeking advice very early in your curriculum.
