    Notes on Appointments: To ensure the most accurate appointment availability, we will open our availability for a few weeks at a time.  If you log in and do not find availability for your advisor, it is possible that they are either booked up or unavailable.  Please continue to plan ahead and check for additional availability!  If you do not see appointments available, please utilize the Drop-in Availability.  Advisors might either be booked up or utilizing drop-ins to assist more students.

  • To sign up for a drop-in appointment, please go to this website:

    1. Log in with your student ID. Click “continue.”
    2. Under “Reason for Your Visit” select “in person” or “virtual” advising. You can provide additional information if needed. Click “check-in.”

    Please see below for how your drop-in session will begin, depending on your selection of either virtual or in-person:

    For In-Person:

    • Please sit in the waiting area. The first available advisor will come to your assistance when you are next in line for a drop-in.

    For Virtual:

    • Be logged in to Microsoft Teams and wait for an advisor to contact you; the first available advisor will send you a Teams chat when you are next in line for a drop-in.
    • If you do not respond to the individual chat in 5 minutes, the advisor will need to move on to the next student, and you will have to put yourself back into the advising queue with a new chat.

    Please only log in once per visit. If you need any support in logging in to Engage, please email
