Scheduled advising appointments (30 minutes)
If you are School of Earth and Space Exploration major with an advising hold, or need a full 30-minute appointment to talk to your advisor about how things are going, please schedule a 30-minute appointment. Scheduled appointments are also good for continuing ASU students that have been at ASU for more than a year who are interested in learning more about our majors.
How to schedule an appointment:
- Current School of Earth and Space Exploration students can schedule a meeting with their advisor from their MyASU page. Just click on the Academic Advising section and you'll find a link to schedule an appointment with your advior.
- Other ASU students interested in School of Earth and Space Exploration programs who would like to schedule an appointment with one of our advisors to get more information about our degrees, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with a brief message about what questions you have for our advising team and we'll work with you to schedule an appointment with the appropriate person.
Students must have their SUNCARD or at least their 10 digit affiliate ASU ID number (beginning with 1000 or 1200) and photo ID when checking in to meet with an advisor. If a student is running late or cannot make the scheduled appointment, he/she should notify the advisor with whom the appointment is scheduled ASAP. Students arriving late may be asked to reschedule their appointment.
