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.

Hours of Operation:

Monday through Thursday: 8:00 am through 6:00 pm
Friday: 8:00 am through 5:00 pm

Monday, December 18 – Friday, December 22
the Center will be open 8:00 am – 5:00 pm

PLEASE NOTE: The CLASS Advising Center is moving to a strictly first-come, first-served status beginning December 4, 2017 and will continue through January 26, 2018.

This is to meet the high demand for advising services in preparation for a new academic semester. NO advising appointments will be scheduled during this time period either by phone or through Starfish.

Please plan accordingly as there may be a significant wait period to meet with an advisor on any given day as we move closer to the start of the new semester.

The Advising Center reserves the right to limit the number of walk-in students seen if advising requests exceed the Center’s closing time. Last walk-in will be accepted one-half hour prior to the conclusion of walk-in availability for that day.

The CLASS Advising Center is located in the
Main Classroom, room 221.

PLEASE NOTE: students need to meet with an advisor in person to discuss their personal academic requirements due to FERPA regulations.
