There are 3 ways to communicate with a BCOE Academic Advisor
Do you need an appointment, drop-in or email?
Use this table to determine whether you need to make an appointment with your academic advisor,
log in during your advisor's drop-in hours or just send an email. You may also find helpful links in the online column.
Note: Academic advisors’ type of availability will depend on which week of the quarter it is.
Drop-in advising is best for quick, 10-minute sessions.
Advisor appointments are recommended for more complex issues.
