bhan - Making an Advising Appointment

Academic Advisors are available by appointment and open office hours. Students who wish to discuss detailed or complex topics (such as registration planning, lifting registration holds, changing majors/minors, etc.) should schedule an appointment. Open office hours are available for quick meetings on a first-come/first-served basis and are intended for brief guidance on matters such as withdrawing, dropping/adding, course approval forms, and other topics that can be handled in five-to-ten minute sessions.
