Advisor Schedules

Scheduling an appointment

  • Use the Navigate app to make an appointment with your advisor.
  • You may try to schedule a same-day “walk-in” appointment with your advisor. To do so, visit the front desk in Farish Hall, room 160 as early as 8 a.m. on that day. To confirm if walk-ins are available, call 713-743-5000. Walk-ins fill up fast, so stop by early.
  • Scheduled appointments are best for degree planning or complex individual situations. Walk-ins are better suited for shorter, simpler needs such as quick questions and petition drop off.
  • Be sure to prepare for your appointment.
  • After your appointment, fill out an anonymous survey at the front desk to help us improve.
