Drop-in advising

Drop-in advising is ideal for students who need to add a major or minor within the college, plan courses for their next semester, apply for graduation, complete NCAA advising or request study abroad course approval. During drop-in advising, advisors will meet with you on a first-come, first-served basis.

Drop-in advising is available most Monday through Friday mornings from 8:30 - 11 a.m.

Nov. 10: drop-in advising from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. only
Nov. 15: drop-in advising from 8:30 to 9:30 a.m. only
Nov. 17: drop-in advising from 10 to 11 a.m. only
Nov. 23-24: no drop-in advising due to Thanksgiving holiday recess
Nov. 27: no drop-in advising

Scheduled appointments

Scheduled appointments are ideal for prospective students, newly-admitted transfer students, students needing to create a graduation plan, students needing a financial aid letter, ROTC advising or post-baccalaureate initial teacher certification advising. Phone appointments can be made for students when physically coming to our office presents a hardship.

Scheduled appointments are available most Monday through Friday afternoons between 1 - 4 p.m. Schedule an appointment online. If you are unable to find an appointment time that fits your schedule, we encourage you to utilize our drop-in advising times or contact Chris Robinson for assistance in scheduling an appointment.

Group advising

Group advising will be available in February-March 2018 to assist students with choosing and registering for fall 2018 classes and in September-October 2018 to assist students with choosing and registering for spring 2019 classes. Please watch your email and check back at this site early January 2018 for information on how to reserve your spot for group advising for fall 2018 classes.


General information regarding our majors and minors, and some registration errors or wait list questions, can also be answered and assisted by emailing cehd-advising@wmich.edu. Please allow two to three business days for a response.
