Your Advisor will notify you through PSN if their drop-in schedule changes or if their regular drop-in hours differ from those listed above. Please continue to check Panther Success Network (PSN) for Advising updates.

Drop-ins should primarily be used for quick and/or urgent issues (15-20 minutes maximum). Longer meetings and those requiring your advisor to conduct additional research are best scheduled in advance and with an appointment.
Drop-in availability will be first-come, first-served and end promptly at 4:00 PM on M, Tu, W, and 12:00 PM on Th, F. While we will do our best to see all students who arrive during drop-in hours, we cannot guarantee that all students will be seen. For guaranteed availability, we recommend scheduling an appointment with your Advisor through PSN.
Students will meet with their assigned Advisor during drop-in hours.
