Drop-in Advising

Need fast advising help?

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

Drop-In Advising

Beginning Autumn 2020, IAS students can view drop-in advising times through Navigate. Login with your UW NetID and instead of scheduling an appointment, look for the gold bar, then click “View Drop-in Times.” 

Student view of Navigate advisor schedule. Drop-in button is below the schedule.

If your advisor is available when you login, click the button to Drop-in Online. If your advisor is not available, you will see your advisor’s drop-in schedule so you can visit again later.

Drop-in advising appointments are generally 10 minutes or less. Students will be placed in a virtual waiting room until their individual meeting officially begins. Students will meet their advisor in the order in which they joined the waiting room. If you leave the waiting room, you will lose your place in the drop-in advising line!

Advising & COVID-19

Advising appointments may be impacted by COVID-19 health concerns, 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. 

No academic advising services will occur if UW Bothell enacts emergency procedures to ensure the health and safety of our community. Students are encouraged to monitor class cancellations and campus closure alerts using the UW Alert system.

Email Advising

IAS students can receive advising support by sending an email to iasadv@uw.edu. Please list your UW ID number and include a brief explanation of the help you are seeking. An advisor will respond within 2 - 3 business days.
