Undergraduate students can meet with their advisors in two different formats: Open Advising and Appointments.
Open Advising: These are time blocks offered by each advisor available for students, offered on a first-come, first-served format. Most of these meetings are less than 15 minutes in length and are not available for Change of Program or Double Major conversations.
Appointments can be made by logging in to Starfish (see below) or by visiting/calling the office. Each advisor has time available on his/her calendar to meet with students, and will work with students' schedules to find a mutually good time to meet.
To schedule an appointment:
- Current SE students
- Login to https://sis.rit.edu and click the teal Starfish icon
- Click My Success Network > Schedule Appointment link under your advisor's name
- *If there are no viable appointment blocks, contact the front desk (see below)*
- Non-SE students
- Call 585-475-5461, or
- Stop by the front desk in the SE Office, GOL-1690
