FALL 2022 BAC ACADEMIC ADVISOR WALK-IN HOURS

FALL 2022 BAC PEER ADVISOR DROP-IN HOURS

 

ABOUT WALK-IN ADVISING

Walk-in is done on a drop-in basis.  When other students are waiting, walk-in is limited to 10-15 minutes per student.

Walk-in advising is a great way to see your BAC academic advisor if you have a quick question or need immediate assistance.

Each BAC academic advisor has 90 minutes of walk-in daily during the academic year with longer (extended) walk-in hours at the start of the semester and during registration.

 

TO MAKE THE BEST USE OF WALK-IN

Keep your BAC academic advisor's walk-in hours in your planner, electronic calendar, or phone each semester.

Bring a list of your questions to make the most efficient use of your 10-15 minutes of walk-in advising.

Walk-in is best for:

  •      Quick questions (forms, deadlines, adjusting classes in current semester)
  •      Immediate concerns

If you have a crisis (family, personal, legal, medical) that impacts your ability to continue in classes, see your BAC academic advisor during walk-in hours immediately.

FALL 2022 BAC PEER ADVISOR DROP-IN HOURS

BAC peer advisors are experienced, successful students who provide additional support to our current BAC students.

In addition to meeting with your assigned BAC academic advisor, we encourage you to drop in to meet with our peer advisors.

NOTE:  meeting with a BAC peer advisor will NOT satisfy the required meeting each semester with your BAC academic advisor and will NOT clear any academic advising holds on your record.

  • Monday         9-10:30 am   AND   1-3 pm

  • Tuesday        8:30 am-12 noon
