Your CECS advisors are here to help guide you through the curriculum requirements, academic policies, and campus resources. We look forward to working with you! 

Advising: Convenient Remote Options!

The CECS Office of Advising and Academic Success is operating remotely at this time.

For the safety of our students and staff, The Office of Advising and Academic Success is conducting all advising remotely.  All normal services are provided through virtual methods, we aim to provide uninterrupted service to students during this time.  We are pleased to offer the following platforms for advisors to assist you:
Hours of Operation: Monday through Friday, 8:00 AM - 5:00 PM

Advisors are able to answer questions you have regarding registration holds, class selection for the upcoming semesters, and many other questions through email.  Email your advisor directly, or click the "Contact Us" link below. If your questions cannot be answered through email, your advisor may suggest a virtual advising appointment.

Please allow 24-48 business hours for a response to your email.

Google Meet Appointments

In place of in-person appointments, we are conducting virtual advising appointments only, through Google Meet.  This allows for video and audio communication, and screen sharing with your advisor.  Click the "Schedule A Remote Appointment" link below, or email your advisor directly to schedule a Google Meet appointment.  Appointments can be scheduled during normal business hours, between 8:00 AM-5:00 PM, Monday through Friday.

Please schedule your appointment well in advance, same day appointments cannot be accommodated.
