CANCELED: Walk-in advising

Wednesdays from 2 to 4 p.m.

Walk-in advising is for quick questions or when you need a signature on a form, and sessions are limited to 5-10 minutes. Walk-in advising is also a good chance to ask questions about substitution forms, AP/transfer credit, force-adding, and additional sources for referrals or advice. Please note that walk-in advising is not offered during the first week of classes or course request week.
