Drop-in Advising

Drop-in Advising has ended for the 2020-2021 academic school year.  It will start up again in August 2021.  If you need to talk to an Academic Advisor you can email our office at undergrads@business.illinois.edu.

What is a Drop-In vs an Advising Appointment?

When you join a "Drop-in" session, you are going to talk to an Academic Advisor with a brief question. A Drop-In session is not meant to last more than 10-15 min. If you think you'll need more than 10-15 minutes to get your questions answered, please schedule an advising appointment with your academic advisor. We only offer drop-in hours Monday-Friday from 10:00 A.M. to Noon and 1:00 P.M.-3:00 P.M.

  • Q: What types of things would be appropriate for a "Drop-In" session?

    A: If you have questions about a form, policy, process, or need clarification about something. If you would like to talk about your schedule, course selection, course planning, or have a dedicated conversation, we encourage you to make an advising appointment.

  • Q: While we're remote, what would a "Drop-In" session look like?

    A: You can access an advisor by following the link below and enter our Queue@Ilinois system. You can fill out the form and add yourself to the Queue. Please be specific as possible with your question. The advisor will email you with either the answer to the question or with a Zoom link to have a face-to-face conversation about your question. We will be sending you an email via your Illinois email account so be sure to monitor it after you submit your question.

  • Q: If I'm not sure a Drop-In or Advising Appointment is right for me, what should I do?

    A: You can always email us at undergrads@business.illinois.edu and we'll help you out. Also, if you're not sure, we encourage you to start with a drop-in and we'll let you know if you need to have a larger conversation and will assist you with scheduling an appointment with your academic advisor.

  • Q: What is the Drop-In schedule for Advising?

    A: All students can come to drop-in advising Mondays-Friday 10:00 A.M. to Noon & 1:00 P.M. to 3:00 P.M. on days that courses are in session. We will not have drop-in appointments during university holidays and all times listed are CST (Central Standard Time)

Advising Appointments

If you think you need to schedule a dedicated 1 on 1 time with your advisor, you can access their schedule here. Advisors generally add available appointments a few weeks in advance.
