How do I see an academic advisor?
All currently enrolled students have been assigned an
Academic Advisor. Please check your ACES email for information regarding who
your assigned advisor is and how to schedule an appointment. An appointment is
required to complete the following: Academic Dismissal Petitions, Career
Exploration, Degree Planning, Financial Aid appeals, course substitutions
and/or petitions, Course Overload petitions and Transfer Planning. Limited
services are still available on a walk-in basis. We encourage you to plan ahead
to visit with an advisor prior to peak registration for a shorter wait time. To
sign-in for walk-in services, please visit the Advising Services Check-In
window located on the first floor of the Cypress Campus Center (directly past
the Student Financial Services office). To ensure we are able to visit
with each student we sign in, we may discontinue our sign-in list for the day
prior to our closing time. PLEASE NOTE: During registration periods, this may
happen very early in the day.
