Drop-In Advising

Central Advising offers online drop-in advising appointments during peak periods of the school year, which are 10 minutes long and are intended to answer quick questions during peak registration times.

If you are an international student, please visit this page for how to access International Drop-in Advising Sessions:

Central Advising drop-in appointments are for domestic students who are new and/or have less than 60 credits that have questions about the current or upcoming registration period. (If you do not fit this criteria, please click here to see which advising team you need to speak to).

These drop-in appointments are scheduled for 10 minutes and are intended for timely questions pertaining to the current or upcoming registration period. The appointments are offered during peak periods, not all year round. Please note that there is usually only time for one or two questions. If you are looking for more in-depth conversation, please book an academic advising appointment on Advisor Connect.
