Academic Advising Appointments

Guideline
Purpose: 

Guides students in procedures for scheduling and keeping academic advising appointments with Undergraduate Advising Center advisors.

Applies to: 

All undergraduate students

Policy Statement: 

Students must schedule advising appointment by phone (785-864-2834) or in person (126 Strong Hall).

Appointments cannot be made by email.

If students arrive more than 10 minutes late for an advising appointment, they will be asked to reschedule.

If students do not know with whom their advising appointment is scheduled, they may be asked to reschedule.

Students can be seen on a walk-in basis (without a scheduled appointment) if there are concerns regarding the current semester.

Students must make appointments ahead of time (at least one day in advance) to discuss future semester enrollment.

Students schedule 30-minute appointments for general academic advising.

Sixty-minute appointments are typically scheduled for students on Academic Probation or Financial warning, and/or if they want to complete a graduation plan, and/or discuss major exploration.

Consequences: 

Students who do not follow the guidelines above may be required to reschedule their appointments or to schedule additional appointments.
