Chat Advising

Chat Advising

Peer advisors are available to answer questions via chat at various times during the week; see the Peer Advising schedule on the next tab for their availability. If you see an "Enter your name" prompt below, then you know a PA is online -- go ahead and chat! Enter your full name and UCID to get started. (Note: If the frame below is blank, you may need to use another browser.)

Some things to remember about chat advising:

  • Peer Advisors do not have access to your records or transcript. If you want help choosing classes or have questions about DegreeWorks, you may need to have a .pdf copy of your information ready to send to the advisor.
  • We may be helping a few students at once - we appreciate your patience!
  • No chatting in class!

Walk-in Advising

Walk-in Advising

Through the winter recess and the first week of classes, all advising will be conducted on a first-come, first-served walk-in basis only. See the schedule below for walk-in hours. These walk-in hours are intended for urgent registration questions only - non-essential conversations with your advisor should be saved for an appointment after the add/drop week.

When you arrive for walk-in advising, please be prepared to briefly describe your question to the office assistant. He or she will assign you to either a peer advisor or an academic advisor, and ask you to wait until your name is called.

We will do our best to assist as many students as possible but, due to the volume of expected visitors, some wait time may be unavoidable. Thank you in advance for your patience!

Please do not schedule an appointment with your advisor to have a form signed.

All forms requiring an academic advisor's signature should be printed out and given to the Office Assistant in the YWCC Advising Center. CC Advisors do not accept forms requiring a signature via email.

Please ensure all necessary fields are completed before coming to the office. If there is any additional information that your academic advisor will need in order to complete their portion of the form, please attach a note with that information. Forms missing required information will be returned to you without a signature.

Please note:

  • Graduation Applications will not be returned to you - they will be sent directly to the Registrar by your advisor.
  • Forms which are not picked up within 1 week of completion will be discarded.
