Office Hours

Due to the nature of our academic cycle (major declaration, orientations, meetings, etc.) our advising ability will vary therefore we recommend that students continue to check our website, our Twitter page, or call or email first if coming to campus specifically for advising needs.  We are closed on all university holidays.

Please see our homepage for a list of advising services available during each time.

Counter Hours/Peer Advising
Hours: Monday - Friday 9:00 - 11:30am and 1:30 - 4:00pm

Drop-In Advising
Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays 1 :30 - 4 :00pm and Wednesdays 9:00 - 11:30am

Appointments are intended for more complex questions.
Students must come to Counter Hours  to schedule an appointment with a staff advisor.

Please note that all advising appointments must be made at least one day in advance! It allows the advisor to prepare for your meeting so you can maximize your time together.
