These drop-in advising sessions can help with quick questions about:

  • General information on your degree plan
  • Dropping a course (Check the academic calendar for the last day to drop.)
  • Confirmation of courses you've planned for the next semester
  • Adding a minor
  • Change a class to Pass/No-Pass
    • Courses in your major or minor cannot be changed to Pass/No-Pass.

Creating a 4-year plan and/or a graduation check will not be covered in a drop-in conversation. You will need to schedule an appointment for those topics.


  1. Have your student ID number ready.
  2. Know what questions you need answered.
  3. Have an idea of what courses you want to take. Use our DIY Advising page to help.
  4. Drop-in advising appointments are meant to be quick, goal-oriented sessions. Please be ready for a swift conversation.
  5. If you join drop-in advising and have an appointment scheduled that you no longer need, please cancel that future appointment.

Students also have the option to meet with their department faculty advisor for advising.
