Drop-In Guidlines

Drop-In's will be on a first-come, first-served basis with sign-in starting at 10:00am; sign-in may end early if demand exceeds our ability to see all students by the end of the day. Drop-in students will be seen by the advisor on duty; they may not request to see a specific advisor. The advising office has full discretion to turn a student away from drop-in advising and require the student schedule an appointment. Below is a detailed list of what can and cannot be covered in a drop-in session.
