There are no walk-in hours over the summer. We will resume in the fall semester.
If you are a current PHSC student and think your question will take longer than 10 minutes, please make an appointment with one of our major specific advisors. If you are prospective major please visit this page for advising options. If you are a student in your first semester at UMD (freshman or transfer), you are required to meet with an advisor in CASA to satisfy your mandatory advising block. Please see the information below on how to make that appointment.
