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 Friday: 8am through 6pm
Friday: 8am through 5pm

In preparation for the high demand for advising services due to the new academic semester spring 2016, the CLASS Advising Center will be going to an ALL WALK-IN schedule, which means first come, first served. No appointments can be made during this time.

Walk-in dates will run December 7 until January 29.

NOTE:  The Center typically stops taking walk-ins one-half hour before closing time to ensure students already waiting can be advised.

PLEASE NOTE:  the Advising Center reserves the right to limit the number of walk in students seen if advising requests exceed either the limited amount of time available or the Center’s closing time.
