Center for Academic Advising and Student Success

Making an appointment is quick and simple!

Cowser with Student

Meeting with your adviser on a regular basis is very important. We encourage students to come in early in the semester to look at what classes come next, talk about majors, make an academic plan with their adviser or process their Intercollege Transfer.

Please keep in mind, during peak registration dates (April for scheduling fall classes, November for Spring classes and March for summer classes) the office runs on a walk-in only basis and we handle all issues during that time.

When you are ready to make an appointment, please follow these simple steps:

Step 1

Call 330-972-7430 or stop into Simmons Hall 205

Step 2

Have your adviser's name ready. If you don't know who your adviser is, you can find out by looking at our office directory or by checking the Student Center in Zipline. You may also ask the person you speak with to check the name for you.

Step 3

Have your Student ID number ready - you can find it on the back of your ZipCard.

Step 4

Have ready the days and times you are available.  You can call up to two weeks in advance to schedule an appointment.

Appointments for continuing students are subject to availibility due to summer New Student Orientation. Most appointment times will be walk-in only and students will be seen on a first come basis.
