Drop-In Advising 

Drop-in hours are available for quick meetings and are intended for brief guidance on matters such as withdrawing, dropping/adding, course approval forms, and other topics that can be handled in five-to-ten minute sessions.

Since College of Nursing advisors develop specific knowledge about the program they serve, it is best to meet with a Pre-Nursing advisor to insure you receive accurate information.

Emergency Information

For urgent personal or family issues that directly affect the ability to attend classes or to complete course work, first come to a drop-in session.  You may then need to follow-up with an appointment with an advisor or dean, as appropriate.  Please note that missed deadlines with no extenuating circumstances are not considered emergencies. If you have missed a deadline, please schedule an appointment or utilize drop-in hours.
