FACULTY AND STUDENT INSTRUCTIONAL GUIDELINES
II. Advising, Office Hours, and Registration
A. Academic Advising
Faculty members are expected to be available to students to provide academic advice. Faculty members should be aware of curricular and degree requirements pertinent to their discipline.
B. Office Hours
All faculty members must maintain regular and reasonably convenient office hours to answer questions from students and to advise students. In addition, faculty members are expected to schedule individual appointments as needed. The schedule of office hours must be posted and must be available in the departmental/program office.
Faculty members may be required to assist in the registration process. Assignments of registration duties are made by departmental chairpersons and by academic deans or directors.
D. Advising Student Organizations
Student organizations are an important part of the co-curricular activities of The University of Alabama. They can contribute to the personal development of students within the context of the University’s teaching, research, and service missions. To the extent that they fulfill these missions, faculty are encouraged to support student organizations by serving as advisors, as guest speakers, and in other roles as appropriate.
Persons on the payroll of the University may not tutor a student in the University for compensation if they have any direct connection with the course in which the student desires tutoring.
