Make an Appointment

The IAS Undergraduate and Graduate advising teams will meet students in UW1-360 beginning September 17th. Our current location in UW1-390 will become the IAS Dean’s Office where faculty business and IAS administrative functions will continue to occur.

Students should enter their UW network ID and password to access the online scheduling tool. 

The advisors make every effort to meet with as many students as possible. Currently their calendars are booking out 3 weeks at a time. If you do not see any available appointments on the scheduling calendar this means that your advisor has no available appointments for the next 3 weeks. The calendar refreshes every night, so feel free to check back for potential cancelations and new openings.

If you are a prospective undergraduate student please contact the UW Bothell Admissions Office for more information.


  • The IAS office is available for scheduled appointments from 9:00am-4:30pm Monday-Thursday & 9am-11:30am on Friday. The IAS office is closed from 12pm-1pm M-F. We are located in UW1 Room 360.
  • During peak registration times the office becomes very busy and sometimes students have to wait to get an appointment. If you need to meet with an advisor in an appointment, don't wait until the last minute. Plan ahead!
  • Students should not make appointments during class time. Please consider your current schedule before making an advising appointment.  Students that arrive 15 minutes late for their appointment will be required to reschedule.
  • Please review Responsibilities Before Your Appointment.

Drop-in advising is on a first come, first-served basis and is designed for sessions that are 10 minutes or less. Students may not use drop-in advising sessions to apply for graduation or add or drop majors/minor. Drop-in advising is not available in the summer quarter.
