Meeting with Advisers

Members of the Academic Advising Team meet with students in 30-minute appointments Monday-Friday between 10am-4:00pm. These appointments can be scheduled via the Advising Appointment System (AAS) in Albert. Making an appointment is easy!

Steps for a 30-minute appointment:
1) Check AAS for adviser availability. The system allows students to schedule appointments up to a limited amount of days in advance, so look through the schedule for a time that works for you. Please read the “Quick Start Guide to the Advising Appointment System" for detailed instructions.
Please note: If you are requesting a Skype or phone appointment, please email your Skype ID or contact phone number to the adviser you are scheduled to meet with.
2) Prepare for your appointment. What questions or concerns do you have?
3) Arrive early! If possible, try to arrive 5 minutes early for your appointment so that our advisers can stay on schedule. If you need to cancel, please do so via AAS unless you are within 24 hours of your appointment, in which case you can reach out to your adviser via email to explain that you'll need to reschedule.
4) The 30 minute & Quick Visits schedules change in the weeks leading up to and including registration, so pay attention to your email for more information on scheduling appointments during these times.
