It is university policy for students to meet with an academic advisor every semester prior to registration for the upcoming semester. Therefore, you will need to make an appointment to see your advisor. You are able to schedule an appointment with your advisor by…
1. Going to the SIUE GradesFirst website (You will need your E-id and Password);
2. Calling CAS Undergraduate Advising at 618-650-5525;
3. Or stopping by the CAS Undergraduate Advising office in Peck Hall, room 1315.
When students meet with an advisor, a review of the academic program requirements and a discussion about academic progress toward the student’s degree will occur, along with course selection for the next semester. Students are strongly recommended to maintain current information regarding their academic program, as well as all advisement materials provided by their advisor.
Students may also walk-in to see an advisor in CAS Undergraduate Advising. The walk-in hours are:
Tuesday: 8:30a – 11:30a
Wednesday: 1:00p – 3:30p
Names are taken 15 minutes prior to the beginning of the walk-in period. Students are seen in the order that they appear on that list. If a student is not present when their name is called, we will move to the next student and continue down the list. Students who were not present when their name was called will be added to the bottom of the list when they return. We make every effort to assist any students who come to drop-in, but when the number of students on the drop-in list exceeds reasonable numbers, we will stop taking names until all students on the list have met with an advisor.
If you come to drop-in, please be aware that we tend to work quickly with each student in order to see all students on the list during the drop-in period. If you have follow-up questions or want to have more in-depth discussion/planning with an advisor, you are encouraged to make a follow-up appointment to see an advisor or come to drop-in after the busy time have passed.
Advisors regularly respond to e-mail in a timely manner. If you have a question or need some general information, you may use this method to communicate with an advisor.
Generally advisors are not interrupted if they are meeting with other students or on the phone. If you call expecting to speak immediately with an advisor, it may be necessary to leave a message. We attempt to return all phone calls in a relatively prompt fashion, as time and resources permit.
