How to Schedule an Appointment

We recommend meeting with your academic advisor at least once each semester to discuss your next semester's classes, academic plan and progress, and career goals. Ideally, your academic advising appointment should be scheduled one to two weeks prior to your priority registration period. Walk-in times are available.

If you would like more information on a specific program, please reach out to the appropriate advisor listed below. Keep in mind, if you would like to change your major, add a second major, or add a minor in one of our School of Animal and Comparative Biomedical Sciences minors, you are required to schedule an advising appointment to do so. If you have general advising questions, or would just like to request a major checklist, please email
