CAS Advising does NOT hold Walk-in Advising in the summer semesters or throughout the fall and winter semesters. 
Walk-ins should ONLY be used for specific issues that cannot wait for an appointment (registration problems, etc.). Walk-ins are issued on a first come, first serve basis and sign-in begins 30 minutes before the start of each session.  Once all of our available time slots have been issued, the walk-in session is closed, so ARRIVE EARLY!

Walk-ins are for CURRENT STUDENTS ONLY! Prospective students must schedule a regular advising appointment.
