Academic advisors meet with public health students by appointment and by drop-in hours during regular business hours. Advising by email is also available. 

Students not affiliated with the public health pre-major, major or minor, should view the information session posted here before signing up for appointment or drop-in advising with a public health advisor. 

Students sign up for an appointment at least 24 hours in advance by selecting an available slot on Wise Advise.

  • Students arrive 5 minutes prior to the appointment time to check in.
  • When arriving in the Office of Student Services, students sign-in on their advisor’s appointment sign-in sheet.
  • The 30 minute private appointment is with the student's assigned academic advisor (determined by campus and last name).

The advising appointments are intended for more complex or multi-question advising, for example, four year course planning, study abroad planning, probation meetings, SAP appeals, degree audits, questions regarding out-of-state transfer courses.
