  • Meeting with an academic counselor at least once a semester is essential to your success.
  • Returning, continuing, and new transfer students may meet with an academic counselor on a drop-in at our front desk or by scheduling a "same day appointment" in person during regular service hours.
  • New students pursuing a degree or transfer are required to complete New Student Advising. New students can then meet with a counselor over the summer. Appointments for one-on-one, long-term planning start the the third week of the semester. Students may schedule a maximum of two same day appointments per semester.
