Individual Appointments

You are able to meet one-on-one with a Career Advisor throughout the year.  Please schedule an appointment in advance by calling (251) 460-6188.  We are unable to schedule same day appointments.

 

Late Appointment Policy:

If arriving more than 10-minutes late for a scheduled appointment, there is a strong likelihood that the appointment will  be rescheduled for another day and time.  A student who continuously arrives late to scheduled appointments may lose the privilege to schedule appointments in advance and will be required to meet with an advisor through the Walk-In assistance service.
