Academic Advising

Speak with an Advisor

Advising Information

Currently we are advising students remotely by email and online video chat using Microsoft Teams app.  Click here for a guide to using Microsoft Teams.

Schedule an appointment

Please schedule an appointment with an academic advisor by clicking on the appropriate link. (NOTE: Newly admitted fall 2020 students should schedule their appointment with an advisor so that is occurs after the College of Engineering orientation canvas module has been completed.)

If you have an immediate concern, please email an advisor

same day advising

Current USF students can schedule a same-day drop-in appointment (formerly walk-in) via Archivum with an available advisor.  Drop-in hours will be adjusted occasionally depending on the time of year and availability of Advisors.

Please note: These appointments are meant to last about 15 minutes to address quick questions by students.

Remote Advising Service Hours:

Peak Advising Periods

During peak advising periods students walking in to speak with an advisor may experience extra long wait times.  We recommend students make an appointment to shorten wait times. 

Fall Term:  Mid-August through first week in September and mid-October through November 20

Spring Term: The first three weeks in January and mid-March through April 20

During the summer, the academic advisors participate in orientation so please schedule an appointment.
