Getting in touch with your advisor

You have a pre-major advisor and a College Contact who can help you with questions. Both are listed on the left-side of your Penn InTouch homepage. Your College Contact is an advisor in the College Office who can answer questions your pre-major advisor cannot, provide a second opinion and provide general advising questions even if you’re a junior or senior.

If you have a declared major, your major advisor is also listed on Penn InTouch.

Contact your advisors by email to discuss their preferred mode for appointment scheduling and meeting.
