Quick Questions & Drop-In Hours:

URGENT:

Due to COVID-19, our office has transitioned to remote advising. Our advisors will continue to support students by working remotely and we are unavailable for in-person appointments.

Please email your advisor to set up phone/remote appointments over the summer. In the fall and spring, students can schedule appointments online using NEXUS.

Staff emails are found here. 

Virtual drop-in hours are offered.

Drop-in hours are for quick & general questions. Advisors typically spend 5-10 minutes with students. If your concern can’t be fully addressed, you’ll be asked to schedule an appointment with an advisor.

Mission Statement:

Academic Advisors promote an active partnership between students and advisors. Advisors provide guidance to students on academic matters and help students navigate the academic and organizational structure of the University. The advising relationship is both consultative and mutually respectful: the advisee should respect the advisor’s suggestions; the advisor is considerate of decisions made by the advisee. The academic advising process supports and promotes the development of students into life-long learners and pro-active, critical thinkers.
