Advising

Academic advising is an integral part of the departmental undergraduate program focused on ensuring success of every student from orientation to graduation. It is an active, ongoing collaboration between advisor and student aimed at ensuring that students gain accurate and appropriate information and guidance to make responsible academic and career decisions that support their career goals. Students are required to meet with their advisor during course request every semester. Failing to do so will result in a hold being placed on their account.

To best serve the needs of our undergraduates, we have:

  • A central advising office that is available to assist all APSC students with a multitude of issues located in 3400 Litton Reaves Hall. 
  • Assigned faculty advisors that are matched with students based on their interests and career goals

Please email apsc@vt.edu with questions or for more information.

Faculty Advisors

In addition to providing information about policies, course requirements and scheduling, the faculty advisors will work with the students on creating personalized educational plans that are consistent with their interests and career goals.  While academic advisors are here to assist all of our students, it is each student's responsibility to understand and fulfill the academic requirements set forth by the Department of Animal & Poultry Sciences, the College, and the University.
