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.
