Drop-in advising

Advising is available on a drop-in basis Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday:  8:15 to 11 a.m.

If you wish to see a specific advisor for a drop-in, please call ahead to verify availability.

Changes to advising availability:

Through Friday, Oct. 28:  Advising will be drop-ins only due to the high volume of student traffic during the spring semester priority registration days. Extended wait times should be expected during this time.

Hours will be:
Monday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday from 8:15 to 11 a.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. 
Tuesday from 9:15 to 11 a.m. and 1 to 4 p.m. 

There may be times we have to cut off drop-ins earlier than the stated time due to unusually heavy student traffic.
