Express Advising:

Schedule a 30 minute career advising appointment for various topics. Log in to your SlugQuest account using your user name and gold password and click on "request an appointment" on the right side of the page. Select the appropriate adviser and a topic for your appointment and fnd a day and time that works with your schedule*.

No-Call No-Show Policy: 

Students and alumni who miss individual appointments without contacting their adviser ahead of time will not have priority to reschedule. Please keep in mind that missing an appointment without notifying your adviser is not only unprofessional, but doing so denies another student of an opportunity for career advising.
