Office Hours

Academic Advising Services (valid until Nov. 25, 2020)

The College of Art and Design Student Services office will have modified in-person hours with limited services from 10:00 a.m.-2:00 p.m. (Monday-Thursday, CLOSED Fridays).

To comply with physical distancing protocols and remote staffing requirements, all academic advising services (individual appointments, walk-in hours, and form submissions) are being conducted remotely via phone, email, and/or Zoom meetings.

In addition to scheduled one-on-one appointments, Academic Advisors will be available each week for virtual walk-ins as listed in Starfish. Virtual walk-in hours are for urgent concerns, or to answer a truly quick question or two. We ask that all other advising needs (including year-level advising) be addressed in prescheduled one-on-one advising appointments.
