Tardiness and missed appointment policy
Students who are 15 minutes or more late to their advising appointment will be required to reschedule their appointment. If you can no longer participate in your scheduled appointment, you must contact your advisor in advance to notify of the cancellation.
After 2 missed advising appointments, you will not be able to schedule a third appointment on your own through our online scheduling system. You must contact your advisor directly for this appointment request, or call our front office at (480) 727-6277 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Newly admitted students
Newly admitted students will receive a welcome email from the School of Life Sciences advising office within 1-3 days of their official ASU admission. This email contains instructions on how to complete our online Canvas modules for an onboarding process. Once completed, students may schedule their Initial Advising Appointment. This will be a group advising session designed to get you started with the basics of your major and the resources available during academic advising.
