Note: Appointments aren't necessary; however, if you want to make sure that advisors are in the office, please email prior to visiting.

The first 12 class days of fall and spring semesters, as well as the mandatory advising periods during October and April, are peak advising times. Advisors are only able to assist current students of the department with pressing advising/registration concerns during those periods. Reply time may be delayed.

Mandatory Advising

All undergraduates in the School of Design and Creative Technologies must be advised before they can register for any semester or summer session. If you do not attend mandatory advising during the assigned dates, you will not be able to register for classes for the next semester until the week before it begins. The department’s academic advisors will give details about the mandatory advising period during each long semester.
