Virtual Walk-Ins Are Available!
The purpose of the virtual walk-in advising is to assist you with a quick question or help you select your spring semester courses. These sessions are intended to be quick check-ins (typically no more than 15 minutes).
If you need help with developing a full academic plan and/or have a series of questions and would prefer more in-depth time with an advisor, please scroll down to make an appointment with your advisor.
