Drop-In Advising: If you need to speak with an Advisor, join our online Drop-ins through Zoom. Drop-In Hours and more information on advising services are available from the Connect With an Advisor pages on our website. Wait time for Drop-ins depends on how many students are in line and when you joined. Drop-in advising is ideal for short questions related to academic or immigration advising.

Advising Appointments: If you need to meet with an advisor for a longer period of time (for example, to do academic planning or to apply for immigration benefits like OPT) we suggest you make an appointment with your primary advisor. Appointments are available remotely via Zoom during our regular office hours. Schedule an appointment with your primary advisor through Starfish, or contact your advisor directly by email (a link to your advisor’s email is in the table below).
