**There will be no walk-in appointments on August 20 due to New Student Advising & Registration**

Walk-in Advising is focused on immediate needs and for issues that can be addressed in less than 10 minutes. 

Reasons you might use Walk-in Advising could include:

  • Questions about assessment scores and classes.
  • Scheduling for next semester or current semester – must already have access code; please bring a copy of your Degree Audit Report (DARS).
  • Initial questions about add/drop/withdrawal – please bring a copy of your transcript.

Walk-in Advising Hours are from 9:00 am – 2:00 pm Monday through Friday with extended times during registration. Hours may vary depending on staffing availability, especially during the summer. 

Students with specific questions may be asked to return for a scheduled appointment or referred to a faculty advisor.
