Meeting with an Advisor

Students can meet with an academic advisor in the CBA in a number of different ways:

  • Schedule a 30-minute appointment one-on-one with an academic advisor. Students can schedule the appointment online.
  • Attend Walk-In Advising. Walk-In Advising is designed for quick 5-minute questions such as declaring a minor, completing a late graduation application or answering course prerequisite questions. Please review our walk-in hours for the current semester.
  • Attend Open Advising. Take advantage of Five Star Fridays and come to the CBA Undergrad Advising Office to meet with an advisor on Fridays between 1:00pm-4:00pm. No appointment necessary
  • For additional assistance, please email your academic advisor. Your CBA academic advisor contact information can be found in MyAkron Student Center.
