Advising Appointments

Current students are strongly encouraged to meet with their assigned advisor during the spring and fall semesters. You can find your advisor's contact information in Navigate, DegreeWorks, or Online Services. 

In the event that your assigned advisor is unavailable, you may book an appointment with one of our professional staff advisors by doing the following:
