Advising Appointments

It is university policy for students to meet with an academic advisor ever 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 you advisor in one of three ways:

  1. Going to Starfish via Blackboard. (You will need your e-id and password to login);
  2. Calling CAS Advising at 618-650-5525;
  3. Coming by the CAS Advising office in Peck Hall, room 1315.

When meeting 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 upcoming semester. It is the student’s responsibility to know their academic program, and highly recommended to retain all advisement materials provided by their academic advisor.

If a student is going to be be late more than 10 minutes for their advising appointment, the student will need to reschedule. If a student knows they are going to be late, it is in the student's best interest to call the CAS Advising office.

Drop-In Hours

Tuesdays – 8:30am-10:00am

Wednesdays – 1:00pm-2:30pm

This is a first-come, first served meeting with an academic advisor. Drop-In advising is limited to 15 minutes. Things that can be discussed during Drop-In advising: schedule changes, major/minor declaration, major/minor requirements, quick questions regarding application processes for Teacher Certification and Professional programs. Keep in mind that advisors have appointments starting at the end of Drop-In Hours. 


Advisors regularly respond to e-mail in a timely manner. If you have a question or need general information, you may use this method to communicate with an advisor.


Generally advisors are not interrupted if they are in an appointment or on the phone. If you call expecting to speak with an advisor immediately, 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.
