Speaking with an academic advisor during open registration

All COSSPP advising services are accessible through Campus Connect. Our online how-to guide shows step-by-step how to access both scheduled appointments and virtual drop-ins.

When emailing an advisor during peak advising times such as this, please allow at least 2 business days for a response.

  • Emailing an advisor repeatedly may delay a response as advisors answer messages in the order they were received, and newer emails may sort a chain to the end of the response queue.
  • It is best to email the last advisor with whom you spoke as they are most recently familiar with your academic information. Emailing the same information or requests to multiple advisors may delay a response.

All drop-in availability is virtual, signing in through Campus Connect and meeting with an advisor via Zoom. Drop-ins are available Monday-Friday.

Scheduled appointments are available on a virtual or in-person basis, Monday-Thursday. You must indicate when scheduling your appointment whether you are choosing a virtual (through Zoom) or in-person (in Bellamy 105/106) appointment.

  • Note that scheduled appointments are often entirely booked for three weeks in advance during peak advising times such as this.
