Express advising to begin this semester

Students with at least 75 credit hours and a 2.5 GPA will be able to take part in express advising, according to Brian Hinterscher, CAS undergraduate advising coordinator.

To qualify for express advising, students should have met with their major advisor previously, according to Hinterscher, and should come into the express appointments knowing what classes they need to take and with the understanding that they waive the right to a traditional advising appointment.

Students who would like to register for express advising must do so by their designated registration date.

Hinterscher said the new option is being offered because adviser’s case loads “are larger than the number of appointments we have available.”

“In addition, we have a lot of students who no-show for appointments. Because of that, appointments are not available for students to be able to register,” Hinterscher said.

Though the option is available, Hinterscher said it is not the “ideal route” they want students to take.

“If they feel they want more ownership, they can take this route,” Hinterscher said. “[It’s] not advised that they do, but at the same time we needed to look at all of our options.”

Express advising will occur during the same time “typical walk-in advising” occurs, according to Hinterscher, but with expanded times.

The express advising walk-in hours will be Tuesdays from 8 – 11:30 a.m. and Wednesdays from 1 – 3:30 p.m.

Students can obtain the express advising form on the CAS advising website, or they can pick it up in the CAS advising office, located in Peck Hall 1315.
