FALL 2023 SCHEDULE
August 21 - December 22

Advising times are updated each semester. Please check the schedule below for current advising appointment dates and times. During the first two weeks of school ( 8/21/2023 - 9/01/2023), only Drop-In appointments will be offered to serve as many students as possible on a first-come-first-served basis. We encourage you to make a scheduled appointment thereafter.

In order to assist students as quickly as possible with advising, recommended courses will be emailed to you by your advisor in preparation for registration. The objective of email advising is to start the communication exchange with students and not to replace an advising appointment. Students are encouraged to review the recommended courses and be prepared to talk to their advisor about concerns and/or questions during a drop-in or scheduled appointment.
