Manage your advising appointment 

  • Check-in online up to 15 minutes before your appointment to let your advisor know that you have arrived, and are ready to be called. Use the link in your confirmation email, and enter the email address used to book your appointment. 
     
  • Cancel your appointment online to give your appointment time to another student. Use the link in your confirmation email, and enter the email address used to book your appointment. 
     
  • You can also check-in or cancel your appointment in-person by using the self-serve station at the Express Desk. Your appointment will be reserved for 5 minutes before it is cancelled. Please note that late arrivals may not be accommodated.

Be Informed

  • Do a little pre-reading! Before you meet with your advisor, read through the online resources to help you become familiar with the basics. Not sure where to look? Ask our Express Desk staff or Student Success Representative for advice!

Come Prepared 

  • Identify your top 1-2 questions or concerns for ahead of time, and let your advisor know what they are when your appointment begins. This is a great way to make the most out of our time together. 

During Your Appointment

  • Take notes to help you remember our discussion. 
  • Ask questions! Let us know if we can clarify any points of our discussion.
  • Make sure you leave knowing your next steps. If you're not sure, please clarify with your advisor. 
  • Work with your advisor to determine if you need another appointment.

After Your Appointment 

  • Review any online resources. 
  • Work on your next steps.
  • Write down questions you may have for your next appointment. Remember: general questions can be answered by our Student Success Representatives!
