Academic Advising

Request an Advising Session

To request a one-on-one advising session, please complete the Advising Request Form in its entirety.  Advising sessions take 30-45 minutes on average and are conducted via Zoom or over the phone.  Advising sessions are offered during the Academy’s normal business hours: Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm CST.

PLEASE NOTE: Advising sessions must be scheduled a *minimum* of 3 business days in advance. This is so that we have time to review your request and prepare for your session ahead of your appointment, allowing us to give you the best support possible. Be sure to plan accordingly.
