Appointment Availability

New appointment times are opened frequently. During busy times, appointments may fill a week or more in advance, so we encourage students to plan ahead.
Appointments must be made 4 hours or more in advance.

Please make sure to only schedule one appointment at a time to allow appointments for other students. 

During busy times, students will be limited to one appointment at a time (first two weeks of the semester, and during registration).



We allow students to decide which Academic Advisor they would like to meet with for advising, or to select an advisor based on availability. Students are not assigned to advisors in our Department, and you may change who you meet over time. Please note, advisor schedules vary and there may be a waiting period for a specific advisor.

Need to Cancel? Go into the system and cancel (up to 24 hours in advance) or email We ask that you cancel at least 12 hours in advance so we may provide the appointment time to another student.

Missed Appointments

Students who miss appointments without cancelling 12 hours in advance may be restricted from scheduling another appointment for a short period. Our advisors take time to prepare for your appointment, and sometimes our appointment times are booked for weeks, so we would like advanced notice to provide the time to another student.
