Should I make an appointment with the Academic Advising Center or use Drop-In hours?
If you know ahead of time that you would like to talk with a professional academic advisor, then you are encouraged to make an appointment by calling 607-274-1001. Appointments are generally 30 minutes in length. Making an appointment allows you to request a specific advisor if this is something you want to do.
If you have a question “on the fly” and need to talk with someone right away, then definitely use the Advising Center’s drop-in hours. Drop-in's are shorter (about 10-15 minutes), but you will be able to get help when you need it. You will meet with whichever advisor is available at the time you drop-in.
If you are not sure whether the Academic Advising Center is the right place to go for answers to your questions, drop-in anyway. We will direct you to the best resource on campus – if it is not us.
