The KSAS Office of Academic Advising encourages undergraduates to explore opportunities and excel as they identify and achieve meaningful academic and personal goals.
Advising is an interactive process between a student and an advisor, which serves as a resource for students to understand their degree requirements, major requirements, and discuss personal and educational goals. Students may find that they need assistance in accessing resources provided by the university including, but not limited to: academic assistance, leave of absences, study abroad, mental and physical health, research opportunities, and campus clubs and organizations and in certain circumstances their advisor may be able to help.
Students are encouraged to meet with their advisor or advisor success coach via 1-on-1 meetings. Alternatively, students can meet with the advisor-on-duty during in-person and virtual Drop-In hours.
1-on-1 Zoom meetings with a student’s assigned advisor or advisor success coach are typically about 30 minutes in length and allow the student to explore various topics in depth. Making an appointment is easy and can be done so online. Follow these instructions to make your appointment today.
The first two weeks of the semester is an incredibly busy time for students and advising. Students are encouraged to utilize Drop-In advising meetings if they cannot make an appointment with their assigned advisor during the first two weeks of the semester.
Drop-In Hours and Modality
Drop-In meetings can be used for quick questions or for advisor approval for an Add/Drop request. These meetings are typically only 15 minutes or less. If you think you need more than 15 minutes, we recommend that you make an appointment with your advisor. Drop-In meetings will only be available during the specified schedule. You will find the semester’s schedule and information on how to participate in Drop-In meetings here.
NB: If the University is closed Drop-In meetings will be cancelled. Should the Advising Office needs to unexpectedly cancel any Drop-In hours, an email will be sent to KSAS students’ Hopkins email.
