Drop-in Advising Hours for Spring 2019

To sign in (join the waiting list) during drop-in hours, please click here. You will not be able to sign in if drop-in hours have not started or have already ended. Sign-ins may end early if the waiting list is already too long for advisors to see all waiting students.

You can also view the current waitlist to check your position or see how many other students are already waiting.

Drop-in Advising is in-person only at 436 and 442 Evans Hall. You must be present on the 4th floor of Evans Hall when your name reaches the top of the list. If you are not present when your name is called, we will remove your name from the list and call the next available student.
