Academic Advising

Academic Advising has officially moved to the new Student Center. Services are located in the Student Center to the right of the lobby, in rooms 116 to 120.

All new students must meet with an Academic Advisor prior to registering for classes. Advisors are available to meet with students on a walk-in basis only. In order to better ensure your visit, students are encouraged to arrive at least one hour prior to the published closing time. Please note, depending on the number of Academic Advisors available to see students, the cut off time for advising may be earlier than half an hour prior to close.

Academic Advisors are available:

  • Mondays - Thursdays: 8:30 a.m. – 6:30 p.m.
  • Fridays: 10 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.

Students are also able to receive assistance for basic questions and scheduling from the Welcome Desk staff in the Student Center advising area.
