Academic Advising

Academic advisors for students on campus are in the College of Nursing Building's Room 315. Students may make appointments by schedule or come by during Express Advising.  

Preparation for meeting with your Academic Advisor

  • Come prepared to discuss your situation, plans, and goals with an open mind. 
  • Write down your questions and concerns before your appointment and bring them with you. 
  • If you are meeting with your Academic Advisor to discuss degree progress and course selection/registration for the upcoming semester, please prepare a list of classes that you are interested in taking to discuss during your advising appointment.
  • Be honest with your Academic Advisor and yourself.

Express Advising

Additionally, during the semester Express Advising will be every Thursday from 9 am - 12 pm and 1 pm - 4 pm. For Express Advising, students will be seen on a first come first serve basis.

For Express Advising meetings that exceed 15 minutes, students may be asked to schedule a follow-up advising appointment.
