Your advisor is here to guide you through your Biochemistry or Microbiology major. We can address your questions and concerns, provide advice, help you create a four-year degree plan that meets your major and professional goals, and connect you to resources. It is important to remember that advising is about the process, and some questions do not have a quick and easy answer. Your advisor will challenge you to self-reflect, to think critically about your goals and strategies, and to develop decision-making skills. For more information about what to expect during your advising appointment, visit UW Undergraduate Advising.
We are currently offering in-person and remote (virtual meetings or phone) advising appointments so please choose what works best for you. Email is still a good option for quick questions. Appointment modality may be subject to change depending on COVID-19 disruptions.
Most* students in the Biochemistry and Microbiology majors will be assigned to advisors based on the first letter of their last name, as follows:
- A – B (R – Z temporarily): Amy Betzelberger (Schedule an appointment with Amy)
- C – H (R – Z temporarily): Sarah Hallas (Schedule an appointment with Sarah)
- I – Q (R – Z temporarily): Jolijn Nagelkerke (Schedule an appointment with Jolijn)
(*Note: Some students, including graduating seniors and students on academic probation, may be assigned to a different advisor.)
