Undergraduate Academic Counselors Accepting Drop-In Appointments

The undergraduate academic counselors in Student Academic Services will be available to meet with students on a first-come, first-served basis during the first week of Winter Quarter. These brief meetings are intended for students who have Winter 2011 scheduling and registration issues, or who are on academic probation. Students should have already met with their faculty advisor, as these meetings do not result in the removal of the faculty-advisor hold. Students may check in with an academic counselor, located at the check-in table in the lobby directly outside of Demaray Hall 150. Drop-in hours are as follows:

• Tuesday, January 4: 8:30 a.m.-4 p.m.
• Wednesday, January 5: 9 a.m.-4.p.m.
• Thursday, January 6: 9:30 a.m.-4.p.m.
• Friday, January 7: 9 a.m.-4.p.m.
• Monday, January 10: 9 a.m.-4:30 p.m.
