How to Access CAS Advising

Tykeson Hallall

Making an Appointment

Advisors help CAS majors and minors throughout their undergraduate journey by tailoring the type of appointment to your needs. Your first step is to determine what type of appointment is right for you.

Drop-in Advising

Drop-in is intended for quick questions (15-minutes or less). We prioritize class registration and urgent requests when a deadline occurs before the next available appointment. Drop-in is first-come, first-served. In-person and virtual advising available! For more detailed questions, schedule a 30-minute advising appointment.

Drop-in availability varies by day and is organized by major. Find your drop-in days below!  Unsure which day to attend? Find a list of majors and their corresponding group below.
