One of the most important services a college provides to its students is academic advising. Students in Fox have several ways to meet with an academic advisor, including Scheduled Appointments for academic planning, Daily Walk-in Advising for quick questions, and Virtual Advising for students unable to come to campus during business hours.
Scheduled Advising Appointments
Scheduled appointments are the PREFERRED method of meeting with an academic advisor and are available throughout the calendar year at Main, Center City, and Ambler campus. Fox Students may schedule an appointment with their assigned academic advisor using our Fox Undergraduate Advising On-line Appointment System.
Freshmen and Sophomores can schedule appointments with any of the Freshman/Sophomore Advisors. Juniors and Seniors can only make appointments with their assigned major specific advisor.
Daily Walk-in Advising
Walk-In advising is offered daily (5 days a week) in Speakman 101 for emergencies and/or immediate concerns. These meetings are limited to brief, 10-15 minute sessions with an advisor “on call” to answer quick questions about any immediate academic issues. A different advisor will be on call each day to see students on a first-come, first-served basis. During the first two weeks of every fall and spring semester, and during the priority registration period for each fall and spring semester, students with questions are encouraged to participate in walk-in advising.
