Dear LA&PS Student,
From September 6-September 30, 2022, because of the high volume of students that we see at this time, we will be offering a combination of in-person and virtual advising service. We will see students on a first-come, first-serve basis through our QLESS system. We will not be doing booked appointments during this time. The operating hours of our queue will be 9:30 – 4:00 p.m., however the queue may close earlier due to high volume, but we will do our best to accommodate you.
We are dedicated to your academic success! Our Front Desk staff and our Academic Advisors are here to provide you with the information, guidance and support to help you achieve your academic goals.
