Drop-in Advising

Need fast advising help?

During peak registration times the Student Services & Advising office becomes very busy and sometimes IAS students have to wait two weeks or longer to get an advising appointment. Visiting the office for drop-in advising can help you see an Advisor right away!

Advising & Winter Weather

No academic advising appointments (scheduled or drop-in) will occur when the UW Bothell campus is closed or classes are cancelled due to snow or other severe weather conditions. Advising appointments may be impacted by hazardous road conditions, even if the campus is not officially closed. IAS will make every possible effort to notify students in the event an advising appointment must be cancelled.

As winter weather in our region begins to develop, IAS students are encouraged to monitor class cancellations and campus closure alerts using the UW Alert system.

Tips for Drop-in Advising

  • Drop-in advising is available on a first come, first-served basis. There may be a slight wait time before you can see the Drop-in Advisor.

  • Drop-in advising appointments are 10 minutes or less. 

  • Students cannot submit a Graduation Application or make changes to their major/minor in drop-in appointments. Make an appointment for these services here. 

  • Drop-in advising is not available during quarter breakers, on holidays, or in the summer quarter.

  • IAS does not provide Drop-in advising for graduate students.
