Academic advising appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes. When making your advising appointment, be sure to write down the day, time, and location of your appointment. Plan to arrive to your appointment early, at least 5 minutes before your scheduled time. Do not make an appointment during a class, or immediately before or after a class. Bring your iCard with you to your advising appointment.

Cancellations, Late, and Missed Appointments:

We ask that you respect the high demand for appointments, as well as the time and consideration of your advisor and fellow students, and cancel any reserved appointment you are not able to attend at least 24 hours in advance. Call the appointment number to cancel your appointment.

If you are more than 15 minutes late to your appointment, you forfeit your appointment, you will not be able to see an advisor that day, and will need to reschedule.

If you fail to show up for a scheduled appointment, you will receive an email warning informing you that you have missed an advising appointment.

If you fail to show up, or are more than 15 minutes late, for your second advising appointment, you will not be able to reschedule an appointment with a Biological Sciences Advisor for two weeks.

Students who miss three appointments in a semester without advanced notice will not be able to schedule an appointment with a Biological Sciences Advisor for the duration of that semester. Walk-in appointments will still be available, but credit checks and course planning are not done on walk-in advising days.
