Please arrive at least 5 minutes prior to your scheduled appointment. If you arrive late for your appointment, you may not have sufficient time with the adviser, and you may be asked to reschedule.

You may also stop by for advising during our designated walk-in hours, when appointments are not necessary.

During fall and spring registration periods (April and November): The Advising Center becomes very busy during fall and spring registration and NO advising appointments will be available.
