Advising Sessions

Advising Dates and Times

Throughout the semester we will have a variety of dates that you can come in for an advising session. These dates, along with location and advising session type, are listed below.

Who can get advised?

Our advising sessions are primarily for first year students and those who are questioning their major choice. Students should speak with their major advisor first before visiting our office.

What can I expect?

These are opportunities for students to meet with an advisor to discuss classes, have their advising hold or pin lifted, and work on an academic plan. Students must come prepared with a list of courses for next semester. This requires preparation prior to attending you advising session. If you wish to discuss course planning we strongly encourage students to make appointments versus coming in for Walk-In advising.

What types of advising are there?

We have several different advising types.

  1. Walk-In Advising: You won’t need an appointment and you can see any adviser available. These sessions can last as little as 10 minutes or as long as 30 minutes, depending on your individual situation. Times will vary depending on peak advising times throughout the semester.
  2. Advising by Appointment: You’ll need to schedule an appointment with one of our advisers at least 24 hours in advance. Visit our Make an Appointment page now to do so. During weeks with advising by appointment students can see a Walk-In adviser from 1:00PM – 4:00PM.
  3. Express Advising: These sessions are meant for students who know the courses they need for the next semester but need their pin cleared to register for classes. Expect these conversations with advisers to be quick, around 5 – 10 minutes. These sessions will be located outside of our main advising office so look below for exact location information.
