Drop-in Advising Hours

Drop-in advisors are available in 101 Taylor Hall, Monday through Friday, 9:30-11:00 a.m.

Drop-in advising hours are great for:

  • schedule changes
  • adding a minor
  • reviewing deadlines
  • applying for graduation
  • internship requirements
  • campus involvement
  • any topic that can be discussed in 5-10 minutes

Keep in mind that if you arrive at the end of this time and cannot be seen before 11:00 a.m., you may be asked to come back another day. If this timeframe does not work for your schedule, please schedule an advising appointment. Because students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis, your wait time may vary. If your question takes longer than 10 minutes to address, you may be asked to schedule an advising appointment for another day. Drop-in advising does not replace your required advising appointment.
