Summer Advising

As you prepare for Autumn Pre-Registration, you have several ways to connect to the College Advising office. While you will not receive your officially assigned Adviser until September, our Advisers-on-Call are available from May 15 until you arrive on campus. 

1. Call or email our Adviser-on-Call

Beginning on May 15, you may email or call our office with quick questions. You can email your question to or you can call 773-702-8615 Monday through Friday during business hours (8:30am-12:00pm; 1:00pm-5:00pm CDT). If you call, say you are an incoming student and you have a question for the Adviser-on-Call.

During Pre-Registration (Aug. 7-18): Be aware that if there is a high call volume, we won't be able to respond to voicemails. If you're unable to get through during this period, the quickest way to get a response is sending an email or calling back later.
