Undergraduate Advisors

If you are a major and you need overrides in the PHYS 1310 - 2310 series, you should contact the instructor (for the class you wish to register with override), or Dr. Rouzbeh Allahverdi. Non-majors who need overrides for PHYS 1230 - 1240 series should also contact Rouzbeh Allahverdi.

Staff Advisors

Physics and Astronomy majors and undergraduates interested in Physics and Astronomy should meet regularly with a College of Arts and Sciences Advisor assigned to Physics and Astronomy:

  • Hannah Garver
  • Abdulmajeed Yamani
  • Richelle Gatchell

The undergraduate advisors can answer questions on general University and College of Arts and Sciences degree requirements, transfer and course evaluation processes, and probation and suspension and can help students navigate their undergraduate experience.

Advisors are located in Castetter Hall (building 21) by appointment and hold drop-in advisement in the A&S Center for Academic Success (building 85, suite 135).

Visit LoboAchieve.unm.edu or call 505-277-4621 to schedule an appointment or for drop-in advisement availability. Email can be sent to PandAAdvise@unm.edu.
