Academic Advising

 The Academic Advisors at Eleanor Roosevelt College are available to meet with students during Drop-In Advising and appointments.  See the guide below to help you in determining the best way to contact us.

Virtual Advising Center (VAC)- Available 24/7

Current students can submit a brief question 24 hours a day through the Ask a Question tab in the Virtual Advising Center. An advisor will respond within three working days (and often sooner).

Important note: Response times may exceed three working days during enrollment periods and/or observed campus closures.

Drop-in Advising

Drop-in visits for current students are designed to last 10-15 minutes to ask quick questions of your advisors.  These topics may include, but are not limited to:

  • Degree audit checks and corrections
  • Review of current course schedule
  • Review and signing of forms including those from Programs Abroad, Financial Aid, and International Students and Programs Office
  • Enrollment questions
  • Academic questions not involving a long-term plan

Please use the Virtual Advising Center (VAC) if you have questions.

Appointments are available Week 3 through Week 10 of the Quarter for current students in 30 minute increments. Typical matters for appointments include:

  • In-depth exploration of major options
