The focus of express advising is on efficient problem-solving and registration planning, so these advising meetings coincide with the beginning of the semester, important academic deadlines, and during priority course registration.
How Express Advising Works
- Students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis
- No appointments
- Sign-in to see an advisor between: 9:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m.
- Students can sign in to see their assigned advisor or the first available advisor
- Meetings generally last up to 15 minutes
If you'd like to arrange a longer meeting to discuss majors, minors, academics, study strategies, co-curricular involvement, or anything else, please schedule an appointment during regular advising dates.

Express Advising Strategies
- Bring your i-Card. To sign-in, all students must come accompanied by their student i-Card.
- Come prepared. Know specifically what you want to learn from the meeting. If you are coming in to do course planning, do your homework ahead of time. Know what general education courses you need and have a list of what you are thinking about taking.
- Come early. Mornings are often less busy than afternoons. When we open at 8:30 a.m., wait times are typically minimal. We may have to close the sign-up sheet as early as 4:00 p.m.
- Try to avoid coming in during lunch time. From 12:00 - 2:00 p.m. we are half-staffed as advisors go to lunch. And this means longer waits.
- If you are on academic probation or you need a hold removed from your record that was placed by your advisor, then you must meet with your assigned advisor.
