Due to currently modified university operations, the Vick Center is only holding appointments online through Zoom or by phone until further notice. Schedule online to make a 30-minute appointment. If you need a phone appointment, please email your advisor or our main firstname.lastname@example.org address.
Have a quick question? The Vick Center will be hosting drop-ins via Zoom Monday through Friday from 1 p.m.-3 p.m. A drop-in is typically about 15 minutes long. Come to drop-ins to get your questions answered that may not need a full 30-minute appointment, but could benefit from an advisor’s assistance.
Students not in the School of Undergraduate Studies (UGS) are welcome to attend Vick Center drop-ins as well.
During busy times, UGS students will meet with their individual advisor to assess their unique needs. At set times (mid-semester deadline, registration, one-time-exception deadline), your advisor will email you their drop-in hours.
Learn about registration advising policies.
Students who are enrolled in UGS are assigned an advisor. You must meet with your advisor at least twice a semester for a major exploration appointment and a registration appointment.
While the Vick Center advisors serve non-UGS students in transition between majors, non-UGS students must see their current college’s advisor for processes like clearing a registration bar, Q-dropping, or withdrawing, changing a class to pass/fail, etc.
Emails from your advisor and from the Vick Center contain important academic information, deadlines, and events.
