Who is my advisor?

Students in the School of International Service are assigned to academic advisors by the first letter of their last name. See below for the alphabetical breakdown by advisor. 

When students are planning for and participating in study abroad, they will meet with the advisor assigned to that region during that period of time. See below for the region breakdowns by advisor.

Peer Advisors help new first-year students make four year plans.

For all other appointments, students may see either the first available advisor or the advisor who serves as a point of contact for their last name.

How do I schedule an appointment with an advisor?

Students can schedule an appointment with their assigned advisor online through our online system: https://sisugadvising.youcanbook.me/. Students can register for study abroad planning meetings, 30 minute academic planning meetings, or 15 minute academic planning meetings through this website. The website shows available appointments for the next two weeks.

What is express advising?

We offer extended Express Advising hours. Students are able to see an advisor for quick questions from 9-1 and 2-5 every day, except Mondays. Due to our weekly staff meeting, our Monday hours will be 9-1 and 4-5. Express Advising will still be first-come, first-served to meet with the available advisor on duty. You can meet with any advisor on duty during express hours.

Peer Advisors

Our peer advising team meets with first-year students to assist them with developing four year plans.
