All Columbian College students are assigned an advisor from the Undergraduate Advising Office based on last name. Schedule an appointment online with your advising group, or POD; stop by office hours, which are currently all virtual; or email us with quick questions.

If you are looking for a pre-law or pre-health advisor, visit our Pre-Professional Advising page. For questions about study abroad, talk to the study abroad advisor.

Schedule an Advisor Appointment

The undergraduate advisors are available for appointments with students. Use the online system to book 30-minute appointments with an advisor from your POD.

The online system will display advisors’ availability in two ways:

  1. Choose Your Advisor: Choose a specific POD advisor and view only that advisor’s open appointments. 
  2. No Preference: View all POD appointment availability by date and time.

Please note: The calendar displays availability for two weeks. Students who arrive 10 or more minutes late forfeit their appointment and will need to reschedule.


Visit During Office Hours

All pods hold the same office hours during the fall and spring semesters. Students can use these 10-minute meetings to ask quick questions, get clarification on forms and policies and access reference information. Students see the assigned POD advisor on duty.
