Make an Advising Appointment
Options for Remote Services
Appointments via remote services typically take more time than in person appointments. Counseling & Advising has adjusted our services accordingly to lengthen appointment times to best serve you. As a result, our capacity is more limited through the month of May and it may take you longer than usual to obtain an appointment with a Counselor.
We suggest you also make use of the Live Chat or E-mail options below for quick questions or urgent needs. If you have completed 18 or more credits in your program of study, Program Advisors may also be available to assist you.
There are various ways students can connect with someone in counseling and advising. Students with disabilities: please click here for instructions on scheduling a remote advising appointment.
