Schedule with an Advisor

College of Arts and Sciences coordinates advising based upon earned credits, per major. If you are a current year one (0-25 credits) or year two (26-57credits) student, scroll below to schedule with an advisor in the 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 by department/major: COAS Advising Contacts

If you are a new Boise State student, not currently enrolled in courses please refer to New Student Programs for information on how to schedule an orientation advising appointment.

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. Due to ongoing COVID-19 mitigation and safety measures, you may see some virtual only options for scheduling.
