Quick Advising vs. Advising Appointments

Quick Questions

Connect with an academic advisor through Live Chat weekdays, 9am-5pm EST unless the University is closed. You will be able to ask a question or two online. If the academic advisor requires more time, an appointment will be recommended.

 


Advising Appointments

You are encouraged to meet with an advisor at least once a semester to discuss interests and long term plans. Appointments are made in advance by calling  848-932-8888 weekdays 9am - noon, 1pm - 5pm EST

Your virtual appointment will be online via Zoom or WebEx and may be with any SAS Academic Advisor. Your meeting will be 20-30 minutes in length, so arrive to your appointment prepared. In order for your appointment to be productive:

  • Be on time. We recommend that you log in 5 minutes before your scheduled time.  The advisor will join you when your appointment begins. 
  • Arrive with questions for discussion.
  • Ask for advice on course registration and academic planning.
  • Discuss degree requirements, including SAS Core, Majors, and Minors.
  • Plan a reasonable and timely graduation date.
  • Post-grad planning.

During pre-registration, have a list of proposed courses for the next semester, including alternatives.  We encourage you to use planning tools such as Degree Navigator, WebReg, and Course Schedule Planner to review any pre-requisites or restrictions on courses you are interested in taking.
