Drop-In Advising Updates

Dear students,

Hope your semester is off to a great start! We wanted to let you know of a few changes to appointments and scheduling we have made to provide you more flexibility and greater access to student services.

• In the past, if you have been more than 10 minutes late, we have asked you to reschedule the appointment. Moving forward, you can make use of whatever time is left of the appointment when you arrive. If your appointment is required for a specific reason, you may need a followup appointment to meet the requirement.
