Summer Drop-ins

Our summer schedule begins on May 20th. During that time we will offer drop-ins on Mondays from 9-11:30 AM and Wednesdays 1-4 PM. All other times will be reserved for scheduled appointments.
Please note that on May 15th, May 22nd, and May 29th our drop-ins on Wednesdays will be specifically for transitioning Nursing-Interest students who have questions about updating their major. If you are not pursuing Nursing, you have the option to participate in drop-in advising on Mondays or schedule an advising appointment. We will resume the drop-in schedule for summer in June.

How to Visit

Visit our center by appointment OR drop-in. We have three modality options for both options: Face-to-Face, Virtual via Microsoft Teams, or Phone. A drop-in and an appointment are two separate things. A drop-in cannot be scheduled. An appointment can.

    • Schedule an appointment through EAB.
    • For a drop-in, visit our office during drop-in hours.

  2. Virtual via Microsoft Teams
    • Schedule an appointment through EAB.
    • For a drop-in, call our front desk during drop-in hours.
    • LINKS ARE NOT SENT TO STUDENTS. Instead, log in with your KSU credentials for the virtual meeting.
  3. Phone
    • Schedule an appointment through EAB.
    • For a drop-in, call our front desk during drop-in hours.
