Do you need an appointment?

All appointments for academic advising are now scheduled through your AccessUH account.

Schedule Advising Appointment 

Effective December 2012, the appointment scheduler will be only one week at a time. Log onto AccessUH every Monday to check for upcoming availabilities for the following week. Do not wait until the last minuteto make your appointment, because you will most likely not find a slot open. We do not accept walk-ins.

Please make sure you have a working UH email address, as your appointment confirmation will be sent automatically to your assigned UH email address.

Available times will be in blue. If a time is closed it will be in red or black. Please Do NOT sign up for more than one appointment per week. If you do you will be notified by the advising office to cancel one of the slots, otherwise we will indiscriminately cancel one of the appointments.

I have a hold on my account and all the appointments are booked. What do I do?

Unfortunately, you will have to wait until the next batch of appointments open up. Appointments open every Monday by 6:00 PM for the following week.

If you have an academic hold it is your academic responsibility to take care of your hold immediately. Waiting until it is time to register for next semester's classes to see an advisor about a hold will most likely result in you having to register late.

What if I am late for my appointment?

If you are more than 10 minutes late you may be asked reschedule. It is your responsibility to make sure you arrive to your appointment on time. You need to plan ahead for traffic, weather, parking, etc.

Appointments for suspension and non-active students

Students that have been placed on academic suspension or have not enrolled in UH for more than 13 months will not be able to make an appointment through their myUH account. These students need to contact the advising office to set up advising. Please contact the HHP Advising center at (713) 743-9840 for assistance.
