Required advising appointment with your professional advisor as follows:

  • Some students will meet with an advisor each semester, Seniors do not have required advising, but are welcome to meet with an advisor to have a graduation review. 
  • Must be a scheduled advising appointment (not drop-ins, which are 15 minutes in length).


  • If you have never met with an advisor in our office, your first advising appointment will either be 30-60  minutes in length depending on your major, which will give you and your advisor time to get to know one another, go over your GPS plan, review your major, and answer any questions that you have.
  • Most of your advising appointments after that will be 30 minutes in length with a few exceptions, such as if you change your major or you are on academic probation. If you have issues making an advising appointment please call 330-672-2862 or email oss@kent.edu for assistance.  
  • Advisors have Drop-In Hours (formerly known as Walk-Ins) - are offered 4 days per week Monday- Thursday, advisors are available for quick questions without having to make an appointment (15 minutes maximum in length). Visiting your advisor during drop-ins appointments does not count as your required advising appointment. To see when your advisor has Drop-Ins available, click on  Who is My Advisor.
