Appointments and drop-ins

CSE Academic Advising is located in Lind Hall, Suite 105 and offers both in-person and virtual appointments. You can review options and select your preferred modality when scheduling your appointment.

You may schedule an appointment in one of three ways:

If you have been admitted to your major (upper division), contacting your departmental advisor/Director of Undergraduate Studies can also be helpful in answering your major-specific questions.


Schedule an appointment with an advisor to talk about:

  • Your courses for next semester
  • Major changes to your academic plan
  • Your academic progress, as required for athletes and ROTC
  • Major declaration holds
  • Academic probation or suspension
  • Special circumstances in your life

For your convenience we offer online appointment scheduling. Schedule an advising appointment online.

Registration appointments:

  • Pre-major students: You will receive an email when it's time to sign up for a registration appointment. Be sure to schedule an appointment right away. You cannot register until you have met with your advisor.
  • Students admitted to their major: Work with your department to determine whether you need to schedule a registration appointment with your faculty or staff advisor.

Appointments unrelated to registration should be made 2-3 weeks in advance.


Drop-ins over the summer are only on Mondays from 2-4 p.m. and are virtual only. Students must be checked in by 3:45 p.m. Drop-ins are staffed on a rotating basis by our team of advisors. Students will meet with the advisors on duty for that given day.

Our drop-in advising hours are primarily held in-person to foster connection and provide direct and immediate support for our students who are regularly on campus for classes. However, we recognize that some students may require accommodations. If you are facing extenuating circumstances that may hinder your ability to engage in in-person drop-ins due to physical or mental health challenges, we want to support you. To request a modality accommodation, please reach out to us in advance by contacting CSE Student Services at or 612-624-2890. Please note that virtual / online drop-in advising is available on Fridays each week.
