Scheduling An Appointment Versus Walking-In:
Walk-in advising is great option if you have questions that can be answered in a short amount of time. Appointments are meant for issues that you know will take longer than 10 or 15 minutes. Examples of topics that should be covered in an appointment include:
|Schedule an Appointment||Walk-Ins|
|Change of major or concurrent major paperwork||Degree audit/ course schedule review|
|Long-range planning||Graduation check|
|Study Abroad plans||Entrance to Major questions|
|Major/career exploration||Course substitutions/ late drop
|Class schedules for the upcoming semester||Withdrawing from a semester/ re-enrollment
|Faculty Senate petitions|
A few important points about scheduling an appointment:
- Appointments are made in ½ hour blocks.
- If you are assigned a specific adviser, you must schedule an appointment with that adviser.
- You can see any adviser during walk-in advising hours.
You Can Help Yourself Get The Best Advising By:
- Reviewing your audit and listing your questions
- Keeping your long-range plan up-to-date
- Bringing in a draft schedule
- Thinking about career possibilities you can explore together with an adviser
- Visiting the advising offices several times a semester
