Advising

Most advisors have options for face-to-face or Zoom advising.

Drop in hours in the Office of Academic Programs (2-64 Ag Bldg.) are M-F 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Questions can be directed to CAFNRadvising@missouri.edu or to the appropriate program director, found on the MU Connect Advising & Student Services page.


About Advising

Your college career will be full of choices. You must decide which classes to take, which scholarships to apply for and which internships to accept, but you won’t have to make these decisions alone. You will be assigned an advisor from your selected degree program (major) who will serve as your academic advisor and mentor, providing you with guidance and advice each step along the way.

Through one-on-one interaction, your advisor will get to know you and your career ambitions and will help you tailor your college experience accordingly.

Change Your Major to CAFNR

Current Mizzou students can schedule a one-on-one appointment with a CAFNR Student Services Coordinator to discuss our college’s diverse majors, minors and certificates. This conversation can include basics about degree requirements, hands-on learning opportunities, career outcomes and processing your major change. To schedule an appointment with Katie Barthel or Laura Friedrich, go to MU Connect.
