Distance Advising

Whenever possible, we highly recommend students make in-person appointments because this is the most efficient mode of advising. However, students may request distance advising if they do not live in the local area or have circumstances that prevent them from being able to meet in-person.


Requesting Distance Advising with your UAC Advisor

  1. Contact the Undergraduate Advising Center (409-880-8822 or advising@lamar.edu) to see if you are appointment ready and request a Distance Advising Authorization Form.
  2. Return the form and a copy of your photo ID (Lamar ID or driver's license) to the UAC by fax, 409-880-7810, or by emailing advising@lamar.edu. This request is valid for only one distance advising session.  A new form must be completed for any future requests.
  3. Please begin regularly checking your LU Email account. A representative from the UAC will contact you regarding your request within 2 to 3 business days to let you know if your request is approved.
