How to make an Advising Appointment

"Make your advising appointments early and often!"



How to schedule an appointment:

Visit PAWS to see your assigned academic advisor.

To schedule an appointment with your academic advisor, please go to SSC Campus and pick a time and day.

You may also call (251) 341-4017 (the FYAC appointment line) or stop by room 1375 in the Academic Services Center to schedule an appointment.

Late Policy: We ask that you be on time for your appointment. If you are more then 10 minutes late, you will need to reschedule at the front desk.

If you have missed your appointment, you will not be able to make a subsequent appointment online. You will need to call the office at (251) 341-4017 to schedule with someone at the front desk. If you miss two appointments back to back, you will not be allowed to schedule another one until after Time Tickets have posted for that particular semester.

Cancellation Policy: Please call 24 hours in advance if you need to cancel your appointment. This allows your fellow students to make an appointment for that day.


If you are a new freshman, please visit the Office of Orientation to learn more about summer and fall advising. For new, first-year students, you are required to attend an orientation session. To sign up for these summer sessions, please visit the orientation website.  We will not be able to schedule appointments for new students in our office. If you have any questions, please call (251) 341-4017 and we will be happy to direct you to the appropriate place.
