Our drop-in and appointment times are listed in the calendar below. 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. 

Drop-in Advising

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

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, and 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.  You can access Zoom from a computer or mobile device, or use a phone to call in for audio-only.  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.
