Walk-In Advising/Office Hours

Due to a busy orientation season, our academic advisors are not available for walk-in advising during the summer.

The best way to connect with an advisor is via email or by setting up an appointment. You can set up an appointment yourself online or by calling our front office at 303-615-0777.
