Walk-in Advising

We invite you to visit the Bio Sci Student Affairs office during open office hours and meet with an academic counselor or peer academic advisor in a walk-in advising session. Walk-ins are seen on a first come, first serve basis and are limited to a maximum of 15 minutes. Please plan to sign up for walk-in 30-60 minutes before the office closes to ensure you can be seen that day.


If walk-in advising is not adequate to meet your needs, you may schedule an appointment to meet with a counselor for up to thirty minutes. Appointments can be scheduled one day to one week in advance, at our front desk or by calling the office’s main phone number.
