How Can We Help?

Virtual Drop-in Advising Sessions

Advising is always available on a first-come, first-serve basis. When visiting the department without an appointment, you can expect extended wait times. We would like for you to have the best possible advising experience so, for your convenience, consider Virtual Drop-ins. 

During Virtual Drop-in advising hours, you can meet with a Counselor/Advisor.  We know accessibility is important to our students, and offering Virtual Drop-in hours is how we can be most accessible to students across four campuses.  This way, no matter where you are, you can always drop-in to chat with one of our Counselor/Advisors anytime during our Virtual Drop-in schedule.  

Use your computer, tablet, or smartphone to chat virtually with an Academic Advisor/Counselor for all your course questions!
