Meet with your advisor

  • Determine the appropriate advisor. You can also find your advisor through the student tab of myMiami; see Academic Advisors section on right side of page.
  • Advisors in 1022 FSB use Navigate to schedule advising appointments. Please see instructions below.
    • FSB Advisors advise all first-year, sophomore, junior, and senior business majors.
    • Non-FSB majors should plan to visit daily drop-in hours.
  • Plan Ahead! During peak advising periods (October-November and March-April), you should schedule your advising appointment 2 or more weeks ahead.

Drop-in Advising

  • Due to COVID-19, Drop-in advising (Monday through Friday from 1-4 pm Eastern Time) will now be conducted remotely over Google Hangouts. Please let us know if you would prefer using a different platform. To sign in for drop-in advising, follow the instructions here.
  • Drop-in hours are for quick questions that can be answered in 10 minutes or less. If you have questions or concerns that may take longer, please schedule an appointment with your assigned academic advisor.
  • Drop-in advising is available Monday-Friday 1:00-4:00 pm during fall and spring semesters. There is no drop-in advising over the summer term.
  • There are typically multiple advisors available during drop-in advising and students are met with on a first-come, first-served basis. Wait times may vary. During peak registration periods, wait times can exceed 30 minutes.
