  • Express Advising is a 5-10 minute consultation intended to address "quick questions".
  • Examples of quick questions are "Can you check my class schedule for this semester to make sure I’m enrolled in the right courses?" or "Do I still need a foreign language course?" or "Will ENGL 102 fulfill the Written Communication requirement?"
  • Express Advising is not for progress checks, graduation checks, first appointments, SAP appeals, probation, re-entry, disqualification or major advising
