To schedule an advising appointment, select a day and time below and enter the requested information and your appointment preference. We will continue to offer virtual (Zoom) and in-person appointments. Please note that all advising appointments on Mondays will automatically be virtual!

In-Person Advising Appointments:

In-person advising appointments will be held in my office, Fell Hall 438A. I will send you notes for your appointment in advance, and you are encouraged to print them and/or view them on your personal device to follow along during the appointment.


If you are sick or displaying any symptoms (such as fever, cough, sore throat, etc.), please do not come to my office.It is imperative that you contain your germs and do not share them with your peers, your instructors or your advisors.


In the case of illness, I will still be happy to meet with you virtually. Simply email me and I will send you a Zoom link to connect on the same day/time as your scheduled appointment. You may also reschedule for an in-person appointment if you prefer.


If you arrive to your appointment and are displaying symptoms, I reserve the right to cancel.


Virtual Advising Appointments:

Prior to your scheduled appointment, I will send you an email with a link to the Zoom virtual meeting space, as well as notes for your appointment. For all virtual appointments, students must follow the protocols for appropriate Zoom etiquette as posted on our website.

Please visit the Communication Undergraduate Advising website for more information regarding appointment types and protocols for each: https://communication.illinoisstate.edu/contacts/advising/undergraduate-advising/.
