Schedule with an Advisor

College of Arts and Sciences coordinates advising based upon earned credits, per major. If you are a current year one or year two student, scroll below to learn more about advising within the lower division advising hub – Center for Advising and Student Success (CASS Office).  If your status by credit does not include an advisor within the CASS office, please see this table to locate advising contacts by department/major: COAS Advising Contacts

If you are a new Boise State student, not currently enrolled in courses please refer to New Student Transition Office for information on how to schedule an orientation advising appointment. New student orientations are required and are the best first step to make contact with advisors.

How to Find Your Advisor

 

Current (year one/two) students, follow below steps to schedule with an advisor:

  1. Find your major
  2. Find the first letter of your last name (please refrain from scheduling with advisors who do not cover your last name)
  3. Select the scheduling link specific to your advisor

We offer a variety of appointments: in person, phone and Zoom.
