For in-person appointments students are asked to practice social distancing and wear face-masks during your visit. Due to limited spacing, appointments are for students only.

Students may continue to email: for general advising requests, such as: Change of Major, ORI MAP plans, Financial Aid MAP plans and to discuss class recommendations. Email response times are 24-48- business hours. Be sure to include your name, student ID number/A-number and best contact information for assistance.

Fall Semester Plan: Advising


All first time students and returning students are required to meet with an advisor. We are currently advising students remotely through email and phone. It is recommended that students meet with an advisor at least 2 weeks before registration begins to ensure they are in the correct program of study and are making the correct course selections for their programs.

Academic Advisors can meet with you on a variety of topics: degree planning, transfer, careers and majors, etc.

Online Advising

Online Advising sessions are requested by emailing Advisors assist and answer questions via email. Email to advisors are professional communications, so please include: first name, last name, and student ID or birth date. Please allow at least 24 hours for a response and 48 hours during peak-times.
