Academic Advising

Schedule An Appointment

Advising Information

We meet with students with or without a scheduled appointment during regular business hours, Monday through Friday from 8 am until 5 pm.  We happily accept walk-ins for students who have immediate concerns, quick questions, or stop by during non-peak advising periods.

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 or if walking in call ahead at 813-974-2684 to be sure an advisor is available. 

Limited Walk-in Advising Days

Due to orientation events, there will be limited walk-in advising available.  Advisors may only visit with students who have scheduled appointments or students who walk-in with urgent time sensitive needs.
