Academic Advising Appointments

You can make appointments for Academic Advising  that are virtual or in-person. For quick questions, you can email or call an advisor directly at the contact information on this webpage! For longer conversations, you can schedule a 30-minute meeting with an advisor.

Virtual Meetings:  All virtual meetings will be conducted on Google Meet, and access to a webcam and microphone is helpful to utilize this service. To comply with FERPA, students will be asked to show a valid photo ID before each appointment. 

In-Person Meetings: If you schedule an in-person meeting, the meeting location will be provided in your confirmation email. 

Walk-In Meetings:  If you do not schedule a meeting ahead of time, we do have walk-in appointments available, but these are on a first come basis and may require some wait time.  Wait times during registration periods may take a little longer than normal.  

Schedule an Appointment: Click on "Schedule an Appointment" below. A confirmation email will be sent to the email address that you provide on the registration form. For virtual meetings, the confirmation email will provide a link to the Google Meet. If the advisor you would like to meet with is unavailable, you can reach out to them by email or phone at the contact information below.
