Advising Options


The advising office for the College of Architecture and Environmental Design works with undergraduate students pursuing majors in Architectural Studies, Architecture, Construction Management, or Interior Design; or minors in Architectural History, Architectural Studies, Construction Management, or Historic Preservation. Our advising office serves as a resource, helping students achieve their academic goals while connecting with the greater Kent State community. Please explore the links to the left for more advising information such as advisors and the direct link to schedule an appointment. Our office phone number is 330-672-0922.


We will hold walk-in advising for the first two weeks of the semester as follows:

January 17th – 20th   from 9 - 11 AM and 1 - 3 PM.

January 23rd – 27th from 9 - 11 AM. and 1 - 3 PM.

These walk-ins are primarily reserved for issues related to spring 2023 schedule adjustments.



Kent State University has professional academic advisors available for undergraduate students to meet with to discuss their academic progress and plan their pathway for graduation. Kent State requires all undergraduate students that are NOT up for Fall 2022 or Spring 2023 graduation to come in for a scheduled academic advising appointment. These required advising appointments  (and any academic planning appointment) must be scheduled using the KSU Advising link, and can be held in person or virtually through Microsoft Teams.

  • Scheduled required advising appointments are 30 minutes long, be sure to double-check the start time of your appointment.
  • Be on time or your appointment may be canceled. 

Walk-in advising is available in-person in room 223 in the CAED building. The purpose of this service is to meet with an advisor for quick questions or time sensitive issues. This semester, we are allowing students to utilize our walk-in hours for required advising as well! We will still have plenty of scheduled advising appointments if you prefer to meet that way, but we would like to provide more flexibility for you to discuss your schedule and fulfill your required advising for the semester.

Spring 2023 Walk-in Schedule: 

    • Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays – 11AM - 12PM
    • Tuesdays - 2PM - 3PM
    • Thursdays - 9 - 11AM and 1 - 3PM
  • E-mail Advising: Students are also able to email their academic advisor with quick questions or concerns. E-mail advising should not be utilized for course planning, as the conversation that influences the advisor's course recommendations cannot be accommodated. For email advising, please find your advisor’s email address below. Include your name and student ID number and the specific question you have.
