FAQs about CSE Academic Advising Drop-in Hours and Spring 2023 Updates

Drop-in advising can be a great way to connect with an academic advisor. Check out our FAQs for how to access drop-ins, when to use them, changes to 2023 drop-in modality and more! 

When are advising drop-ins offered?

Starting Spring 2023, drop-ins for academic advising will be offered Monday-Friday from 2-4pm. Mondays and Fridays will be held virtually, Tuesdays-Thursdays will be held in-person in 105 Lind Hall. Extended drop-ins will be offered during first day of the term. 

What can I accomplish during advising drop-ins?

Drop-ins are where you can have five-10-minute meetings with an on-duty CSE college academic advisor to discuss topics including, but not limited to:

  • Reviewing your APAS
  • Questions about connecting with resources
  • Questions about liberal education requirements
  • Discussing academic policy questions
  • Using your One-Time-Only Late Withdrawal

How can I access advising drop-ins?

You can find more information about academic advising drop-ins here, including the Zoom link for joining remote drop-in advising on Mondays and Fridays. For in person advising Tuesdays-Thursdays, students should check-in at the front desk in 105 Lind Hall. Students should check-in by 3:45pm at the latest in order to meet with an academic advisor that day. 


Can I get my OA/DS/any other hold removed during drop-in advising?

No, lower division students must meet with their assigned college advisor for a required registration meeting to have their OA hold removed. Upper division students must meet with their departmental advisor to have their DS hold removed. For any other hold, please review the type of hold in MyU and follow the included instructions on how to have it removed. Instructions on how to view holds may be found here. 


What if I'm in the University Honors Program?

As the University Honors Programs has unique requirements, honors students should connect with their honors advisor directly. More information for honors students may be found here.


What if I'm an upper-division student?

If you have been admitted to your major (upper division), contacting your departmental advisor/Director of Undergraduate Studies may be more helpful with answering major-specific questions. If you have questions about resources, liberal education requirements, academic policies, or just aren't sure where to start with a question, you can always stop by drop-in advising or email your college advisor.


What if I need to meet with an advisor for longer than 5-10 minutes?

If you need a longer meeting with an advisor, you should contact your college advisor via email or check to see if they have any advising appointments open using the online scheduler. If your concerns are urgent, they may suggest that you start with drop-ins as that may get you connected with the information you need in the most timely manner. 

Can I meet with other CSE Student Services offices for drop-ins?

 Yes! CSE Career Services and the CSE International Programs team both have drop-in opportunities. 

CSE Career Services offers drop-ins during the same time as advising (Monday-Friday from 2-4pm). Mondays and Fridays will be held virtually, Tuesdays-Thursdays will be held in-person in 105 Lind Hall.

The CSE International Programs team offers drop-ins Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2-4pm in person in 105 Lind Hall.
