Advising, counseling, disability and occupational support return to Student Center’s 3rd floor

August 9, 2017

The following departments have returned to their location on the 3rd floor of the Student Center:

  • Academic Advising & Transfer Center
  • Counseling & Career Development
  • Disability & Occupational Support

The Academic Advising & Transfer Center is on all “open advising” until Sept. 1  in order to see more students.  Open advising means students are seen in the order in which they check in at the front desk.  Students are encouraged to come earlier in the day as they tend to get very busy with longer wait times after 11 a.m.

The Academic Advising & Transfer Center summer hours are:

Monday, Wednesday, Thursday & Friday 8:00-5:00

Tuesday 8:00-7:00

Fall hours resume Aug. 21:

Monday- Thursday 8:00-6:30 and Friday 8:00-5:00
