How to Schedule an Advising Appointment

Schedule an Advising Appointment

Quality academic advising is an important feature of the department's undergraduate programs. Each student works with their academic advisor with whom they should be meeting with at least once per semester to discuss their academic progress plan, design course sequences, and outline options for postgraduate training and placement (e.g., post-bachelor’s degree careers and/or graduate school).

Although there are many common course requirements, there is no stereotyped academic progress plan for any student. Academic plans are constructed with the needs, background, interests, and plans of the individual in mind.


The appointment system opens up to 28 days in advance. If you do not see anything open, make sure you are clicking “Next Days.” If you still do not see any dates and times appear after clicking “Next Days,” please contact your academic advisor. You must schedule an appointment at least 12 hours in advance, and you MUST include a reason when scheduling an appointment.
