Advising

Academic Advising is meaningful educational planning. You will work with your advisor to explore and define your academic interests and goals. Together you will create a clear educational plan that will lead to the successful completion of a university degree that matches your interests, strengths, values, and career goals.

Goals and Objectives

Academic advising facilitates student development and is an integral part of the educational process at MU. The ultimate goal is to help you gain the most from your experience at MU. Advising objectives include helping you:

  • Acquire and demonstrate awareness of campus resources.
  • Become an independent and active navigator of your undergraduate experience.
  • Explore, understand, and meet degree requirements.

Connect with Your Advisor

The name of your assigned advisor is listed in myZou. Political Science majors are advised by either Rebecca Fallon (last names A-K) or Kati Abbott (last names L-Z).

Appointments/ Walk-Ins

Both of our advisors are available to meet with students during walk-in hours or by appointment.

Rebecca's walk-in hours are typically held Monday—Friday from 8:30am—10am. Kati's walk-in hours are Monday--Friday from 8:30--10:30am.

Please check MU Connect for possible cancellations. Walk-ins are for quick questions and are limited to 10 minutes each. If you need additional time, please schedule an appointment.

Appointments can be easily scheduled through MU Connect. If you are not a current Political Science major you will need to search for either Rebecca or Kati. Note: MU Connect works best with Chrome or Firefox. Using Safari or Internet Explorer is not recommended.

If you cannot keep your scheduled appointment, please use MU Connect to cancel it as soon as possible. Please be respectful of your advisor’s and other student’s time. If you are more than 5 minutes late for an appointment, you may be asked to reschedule it.
