Walk-in Advising

Walk-in advising is intended for issues that can be resolved with a brief meeting with an advisor. Students should schedule an appointment for issues that require longer sessions, including academic probation, change of major, and new transfer student advising.

Same Day “Express” Phone Appointments (ASU Online students only)

Starting May 7, we will offer same day “express” phone appointments on Monday afternoons to our ASU Online students. This is a convenient way for online students to have a brief advising session for issues that can be resolved quickly. Some types of advising require a longer, more in-depth session and so are not appropriate for express advising, including first-time advising appointments (for new students), academic probation, and change of major. Students should schedule a regular phone advising appointment for these. To schedule a regular phone appointment, click on the maroon link near the top of this page.

To schedule an express appointment, please call the Advising Center at (480) 965-8364 the same Monday between 9AM and 12PM AZ time. Appointments will be scheduled for that same afternoon between 2PM and 5PM. Express appointments will be booked on a “first-come, first-served” basis. Once all time slots for that day are full, we will not be able to accommodate additional students. An advisor will call you at your appointment time at the phone number you provide. Please have access to a computer during your appointment. Express phone appointments will be scheduled that same day only, not in advance, and are reserved for ASU Online students.

Same Day “Express” Phone Advising schedule starting May 7:

Mondays 2-5 p.m.

To schedule, please call 480-965-8364 the same day between 9AM and 12PM AZ Time (AZ's current time can be found here.)
