Advising Hours & Appointments

Professional Advising Appointments

As a SEAS student, you have four options for meeting or communicating with your professional advisor: you may schedule a standard appointment, show up for Open/Express Advising Hours, attend a group advising session or workshop, or communicate via email. 

Email

Email is a good option to use when you have brief questions or concerns to share with your academic advisor. However, for academic planning or related issues that require more time, we encourage you to schedule an appointment or attend Express Advising Hours.

Open/Express Advising Hours

These sessions are available throughout the academic year and are offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Express advising meetings are limited to 10-15 minutes.
