Group Advising Archive

Before you email us or see us in Zoom, check out our Group Advising Archive here.  There's information about enrollment, summer options, graduation requirements - all kinds of things!  You may be able to get what you need right away, without needing to wait.

Zoom Drop-in Advising

If you have a quick question or need to talk with us today, Zoom drop-in advising is the best choice.  You can find the Zoom drop-in link by clicking on the google calendar event below or the document linked here.

Adviser staffing and availability subject to change; please plan ahead when meeting a deadline.

If you are having trouble viewing the calendar, we recommend you use Google Chrome as your browser. 

Advising Appointments 

Please schedule an appointment with us if you think your questions will take longer than 10-15 minutes to address.  Students usually schedule appointments when they want to discuss topics like:

  • major exploration
  • making an academic plan to qualify for a major
  • readmission
  • academic standing
  • petitions for things like retroactive medical withdrawal from a course or GE substitution petitions

For the forseeable future, all appointments are being held over Zoom. When you schedule your appointment, you'll get the Zoom link for the adviser you're meeting with.

Make your appointment using the Slug Success system.  Please note that you'll only be able to see availability for appointments up to two weeks from now. 

If you're not currently enrolled, you'll need to email us or come to drop-in advising instead; only active students can use Slug Success.
