Advising Center

Hours and Scheduling

Advising for students in the College of Liberal Arts and Social Sciences is a multi-part process. Freshmen (0-29 credits) are advised in the First Year Advising Center. Students then transition to their home general education advising office during their sophomore year. Students with a CLASS major will also have a faculty advisor located in the department which houses the declared major. Students should meet regularly with their advisors to ensure timely progression toward graduation. Students in the Honors/Scholars, Athletics and TRiO programs will be advised in those program offices.

The Center recommends that you make a scheduled appointment to ensure adequate time for advising. If you choose to visit us during our limited walk in times, you may have to wait and/or be asked to schedule an appointment if your situation requires more time.

Hours of Operation:

Transfer students who have not yet applied or been admitted into CSU but plan on attending in the near future should call the  CSU Transfer Center at 216-687-5568 or email to schedule an appointment for an unofficial transfer evaluation.

Transfer students who have been admitted into into CSU may use their Starfish account to schedule an appointment. PLEASE NOTE: The CLASS Advising Center urges you to also call our Center for further information regarding what to bring and how advising is structured prior to your appointment. This information may assist you in completing all your advising needs in one day, thus possibly negating the need for another advising session prior to the start of the semester you intend to enroll.
