Appointments and Drop-In Hours

Drop-In Schedule

(subject to change)

Due to Academic Advisors continuing to work remote, in lieu of regular drop-in hours, COMM Advisors will conduct 20-minute appointments open to all undergraduate students. 20 minute appointments are meant to answer quick questions but advisors will do their best to accomodate your request in the short appointment.
