Late Policy: Any student who arrives 15 minutes or later for an appointment may be asked to reschedule for the next available date. Showing up late could have a ripple effect on the Academic Advisor meeting with their students on schedule for the remainder of that day.  Please be courteous of other students and show up on time!

Not sure who your assigned Academic Advisor is?  Students are assigned by major and classification level. Please see below.
