Advising Options

Kent State University requires all undergraduate students to meet with an academic advisor at least once a semester to discuss their academic progress and plan their pathway for graduation. These Required Advising Appointments must be scheduled using the Schedule Advising Appointment link.

  • Appointments are 30min, double-check the start time of your appointment.
  • Be on time or your appointment may be canceled.
  • Be sure to check-in with the front desk when you arrive for your appointment!

For your convenience, our office also offers other methods to get your non-mandatory advising related questions answered. Details are presented below: 

Walk-In Appointments: Alicia Boulton and Corey Piazza will regularly hold walk-in appointments between 3:00-4:00pm. Walk-in appointments will not fulfill your mandatory advising requirement. To ensure we are fully available for scheduled appointments, walk-in appointments will not be accepted outside of walk-in advising hours. If you have a question outside of walk-in advising, please email your assigned advisor. 

Email Advising: Students are also able to email their academic advisor with questions or concerns. Please find your advisor’s email address below. 

Advisors may address single questions via email rather than an appointment. When emailing your advisor, always include the following:

  1. Include your name, student ID
  2. Copy and paste the exact error message for any registration issues
  3. If the course is NOT in our college, we cannot authorize you for it. You must contact that department directly.
