Academic Advisors for Student-Athletes

Located on the lower level of the Arrillaga Center for Sports and Recreation, the AARC is a support center for Stanford varsity student-athletes.


In the AARC, students will find two conference rooms (both frequently used for tutoring and group projects), one large room with a variety of study tables and a bank of 12 computers, and five UAR advisors ready to help student-athletes with academic advising matters, including but not limited to:

  • Course Selection
  • Scheduling Conflicts
  • Major Selections and Declaration
  • 4-year Plans
  • Research Opportunities
  • Faculty Connections
  • Tutoring/Study Skills
  • Exams While Traveling
  • Summer School

AARC advisors have posted responses to some common student-athlete questions in the Student Guides portion of the Undergrad website, and they have answers to many more questions if you contact them at the Athletic Academic Resource Center.

You can also Meet Your AARC Advisors and make appointments here.
