Advising and Registration Resources

Academic advising appointments are currently virtual via Zoom, with an option for a video or phone appointment.

If you have a CHSS advisor listed on your Degree Works, you can make an appointment with a CHSS Advisor through Navigate. If you do not have a CHSS advisor listed on your Degree Works and you would like to meet with someone, please visit our Live Chat feature, Monday – Friday, 8:30 – 4:30 p.m., and we can schedule an appointment for you. Instructions on how to access the Zoom link will be provided once you have scheduled an appointment.

Getting academic advisement is a critical part of supporting you throughout your college experience! The goal of advising is to help you make decisions, manage your educational goals and support you towards your future professional career path.

On this page you will find how-to videos and other resources that will help you navigate different platforms and tools that are commonly during the advising/registration process.
