Schedule an Advising Appointment

Looking for guidance and a longer conversation? We welcome the chance to speak with you and can advise on many topics. At this time, when you schedule with us using the online scheduler, you'll automatically receive an email confirmation. Beginning August 16, our office will be open for in-person meetings. Students can request a remote option when scheduling an appointment. When scheduling an appointment through Chatter, please be sure to find the CALS Student Services tab or in the "More" tab drop-down. Please note that other offices also use Chatter and have their own appointment booking pages.
