To serve our students and help address various advising needs we offer three distinct advising options: daily drop-in option for quick questions, individual 30-minute appointments and group advising targeted for specific cohorts of students.
If you want to discuss your current semester or plan out future semesters, an individual appointment with your assigned academic advisor is the best choice!
Our advisors are here to consult with students while making decisions regarding academics. We encourage students to make an appointment every semester for guidance in planning out courses and are also available whenmaking other academic decisions. Appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes. Students can choose to meet in person, via zoom or by phone.
