How to Meet with an Advisor

  1. New students MUST first complete the admissions process and the START orientation.
  2. Either make a 30–minute appointment ahead of time OR follow our drop–in procedures described below:

Make an Appointment

  • In Person: Come to the Advising Office (BE1102D) during regular business hours
  • By Phone: Call the appointment line at: 206.934.4068

Drop–In Advising

(first–come first–served basis)

  • Monday: 1:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.
  • Tuesday: 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.
  • Thursday: 1:00 p.m.–4:00 p.m.
  1. Students must pick up numbered tickets from the Advising Office any time before the start of drop–in that day. Tickets are given out on a first–come, first–serve basis.
  2. The numbered ticket holds your place in line; it does not guarantee that you will see an advisor.
  3. You must return to the Advising office 5 minutes before the start of drop–in to sign in. Have your photo ID ready.
  4. If you are not present when we call your number, you will not be able to use your ticket to move farther up in the line.
  5. We will use the digital clock in the Advising lobby as our reference.
  6. Sign–up for drop-in begins at the start times of drop–in.

Plan Ahead, Call Early

Non–registration periods between weeks 3 and 7 are good times to schedule an advising appointment. Appointments and drop-in advising times fill quickly so we recommend stopping by the office in BE1102D for more information. Our office becomes very busy during peak registration times, sometimes students have to wait so plan early.

Note: If you are more than 10 minutes late to your appointment, it will need to be rescheduled so that the next student will not be delayed. To cancel your appointment, please call Advising: 206.934.4068.


Please bring the following to your Advising Appointment:

  • Photo ID
  • College transcripts from other schools you have attended (official or unofficial)
  • Any advising and educational planning information received from previous advising sessions (AA degree sheets, long–range plans, test scores, etc.)
  • Any transfer information you have on your prospective university or intended major
