Appointment Information

Changes for Fall 2019

New! Same Day Appointments

We changed drop-in advising to 20 minute "same day" appointments, so now you can pick a time that works for you.

A same day appointment is a pre-scheduled meeting, booked that day, for you to be seen that same day.

  • Same days are offered each day that classes are in session, in both the morning and afternoon, starting September 19, 2019.
  • Same day sign up is online via Calendly. Sign ups open each morning at 8:00 am.
  • Same day appointments may be conducted over the phone as well.

Planned Appointments

  • You may schedule up to two weeks out. Calendly allows you to view dates beyond 2 weeks, but the calendar will not display our availability. Please check back regularly (i.e., tomorrow) if there are currently no appointments available.
  • Because appointments often fill up, it is best to plan two weeks in advance. Keep in mind important deadlines!
  • During the add/drop period (first 8 days of instruction), we do not offer planned appointments, we only offer same-day appointments.

Appointment Cancellation

As a courtesy to our office and your peers, if you need to cancel or reschedule your advising appointment, use the link in your confirmation email or give us a call.

We prefer at least 24 hours advance notice, but we know last minute things come up and that's okay.
