We’re here to support your journey.

Broad College academic advisors are coordinators of your undergraduate experience. We provide critical information about academic programs and degree requirements, education abroad, leadership development, major choices, career options, policies and procedures, and campus resources.

The following services are for students currently pursuing or interested in pursuing all Broad majors except hospitality business. Students currently pursuing or interested in pursuing hospitality business have access to customized hospitality business advising services.

Drop-in Academic Advising

Drop-in advising is not available in the summer. Please check back in late August for the Fall semester schedule.

Drop-in advising is a first-come, first-served in-person advising service; no appointment needed. Students must be signed in at least 10 minutes prior to the end of the session to be seen by an advisor (this limit may be adjusted based on capacity).

Location: Undergraduate Academic Services, E101 Eppley Center (1st floor)

30-Minute Academic Advising Appointment (Monday-Friday)

These are individual appointments for students to ask questions, plan schedules, discuss academic concerns and make sure they are on track for graduation. To make the most of your advising appointment, please prepare for your academic advising appointment. Students must make appointments online in advance and are required to cancel in advance through the scheduling system if they cannot attend a scheduled appointment.

Students are strongly encouraged to participate in academic advising interactions independently. However, if a student wishes to include another person in the advising appointment, a Release of Information Authorization must be completed and sent to the advisor (via MSU email) prior to the appointment.

Prepare for Your Academic Advising Appointment

  • Fill out all requested information in the online appointment system. If you do not provide complete information, your appointment may be cancelled. We ask that you do not schedule multiple appointments within a short time (1-2 weeks), as appointment times are limited and in high demand.
  • Know the requirements.
  • If your appointment will include a discussion of future class schedule planning, please attempt to plan a tentative schedule in your Shopping Cart using the Classes tile on the Student home page of SIS.
  • From the Students home page in SIS, select the Academic Progress tile to see how you have progressed towards graduation.
  • Make a written list of questions you plan to ask during your appointment.
  • Bring any forms you need signed with you in paper form – you will not have access to print forms in your advisor’s office.
  • Identify transfer credit equivalencies using Transfer MSU, although it’s always best to confirm this information with an academic advisor if you have any questions.
  • Research Education Abroad options using the Via TRM portal – a great way to identify and favorite your preferred programs.

Students who are unable to enroll in courses due to certain restrictions or because the class is currently full may request an enrollment system override in order to enroll.

Broad Undergraduate Academic Services (UAS) advisors cannot grant overrides. Students must fill out the online request form (for Broad courses) or follow departmental procedures (for courses outside Broad).
