undergraduate students with majors and/or minors in CHABSS and CSM.

orientation, please DO NOT schedule an academic advising appointment until AFTER you
have attended orientation.

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
- 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”.

their right to schedule further advising appointments for a 60-day period.
