Our offices are not currently open to in-person walk-ins, but we are here to help.

If you are an undergraduate student and you have any questions for our advising staff, please submit them via the Virtual Advising Center.  There, you can also find instructions for scheduling a Zoom appointment (on the "Meet with Advisor" page).

If you have academic-related forms or paperwork that require our review and signature, please email them to

We appreciate your flexibility, and we hope everyone stays healthy. If/when we are able to re-open in-person advising, we will update you.
