Express academic advising

Express advising – same day service

Express academic advising is held each Tuesday and Friday when classes are in session during the fall and spring semesters. Express academic advising is unavailable on days when the university is closed. Please note that during the summer and winter break, advisors are available by appointment only.

Express academic advising policy

To better address student needs, the Herberger Institute advising team has implemented the following express advising policy.

Express advising meetings are limited to 20 minutes or less. Because of this time constraint, the following advising services are appropriate for express advising:

  • Follow-up from previous advising appointment.

  • Digitally sign electronic forms (such as Word or PDF files that can be emailed to the on-call advisor).

  • Checking over scheduled courses.

  • Registration advising for students without a hold.

Given the limited time available in a express advising meeting, the following areas require a scheduled appointment with an academic advisor:

  • Students interested in concurrent majors.

  • New students, freshman and transfer.

  • Students with advising holds.

  • Students in need of long-term career or academic planning.

  • Students wanting to change majors.

  • GPS (graduation planning sheet).

  • Initial probation appointment.

Some express meetings may run over by a few minutes. The 20 minute time slot selected is not a guarantee, but the approximate time the student will be seen.
