Book an advising appointment

For an advisor to speak about or release student information via email or on the phone, a student must have e-signed the FERPA Consent to Release Form. This form can be found on CIS -> Financial Aid -> FERPA Consent to Release. Be sure to check the box for Academic Advising. If you are looking for advice through email, be sure to include your FERPA PIN in your original email. On the phone, please have it handy. That is how we can be sure it is you.

World Languages & Cultures Peer Advisors are students who’ve declared a major in the department and are in third or fourth year language classes. They hold open office hours for students who want to walk in and get some quick help. They can declare majors or minors, and can otherwise provide basic advising on all of our programs.

There is a Book Now link on the main World Languages and Cultures page, or you can use the link at the top of this page!

An Academic Advisor's job covers a great variety of duties from advising students to compiling the class schedule to attending University Academic Advising Committee meetings. By taking appointments, I can make sure I will be here and be prepared for our meeting. If something comes up, we have your contact information so you don't arrive at the office and find we're not able to assist you.

During Fall and Spring semesters, we have a small staff of Peer Advisors to assist with Quick Answer Advising. If you have a quick question, drop in during these hours (they will be posted below) to ask. You can also always send us an email.

We answer emails every day, and make a point of responding no later than three days after an email is sent. Sometimes you might get a response within ten minutes! 

The appointment calendar will let you book from 12 hours in advance up to 3 weeks in advance. There are no same day appointments.
Ideally, you should come prepared for your appointment by generating and bringing a current DARS for your major or minor in our department.
Of course! However, your phone screen is generally a little small. 
If you're more than ten minutes late, you might be told to reschedule. As your advisor, we will be on time and prepared for you, and it is your responsibility and common courtesy to do the same in return.
