Schedule an Appointment

Scheduled appointments are ideal for prospective students, newly-admitted transfer students, students needing to create a graduation plan, students needing a financial aid letter, ROTC advising or post-baccalaureate initial teacher certification advising. Phone appointments can be made for students when physically coming to our office presents a hardship.
