Advising Appointments

  • Scheduled appointments with an Academic Advisor are offered to admitted and matriculated undergraduate students with majors and/or minors in CHABSS and CSM.
  • Be sure to run your ARR and Degree Planner before attending your appointment.
  • Limited appointments are available during the add/drop period, enrollment periods and during the summer. This is because we are offering drop-in advising or attending new student orientations. 
  • Due to the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA), parents, guardians and/or friends may not accompany a student into their advising appointment without a FERPA Release Form. If you wish to complete a FERPA Release Form, please do so well in advance of your appointment.

No Show Policy

In an effort to be fair and equitable to all students, Undergraduate Advising Services enforces a “no-show” policy. This policy is not designed as a punishment; rather, it serves as a reminder to be respectful of fellow students’ time.

  • Please be courteous to other students by cancelling your appointment if you are unable to attend.
  • Please arrive on time. Students who arrive 15 minutes or more after their scheduled appointment will be asked to reschedule and will be recorded as a “no-show”.
  • Students who "no show" or do not cancel their appointment on two occasions forfeit their right to schedule further advising appointments for a 60-day period.

Cancelling Appointments

  • Before your scheduled appointment, you must cancel online, by phone at 760-750-4060, or in person at Craven Hall 1300.
  • If you fail to cancel your appointment, it will be recorded as a “no-show”.

Schedule an appointment

NEW STUDENTS: Please do not schedule an appointment until after you have completed the New Student Advising & Enrollment Tutorial and self-enrolled in courses.

As a reminder: We do not offer scheduled appointments during the early registration period because we are offering drop-in advising. You are welcome to stop by for drop-in advising to receive guidance, no appointment is needed!
