One-on-One Appointments

We offer one-on-one appointments in person, over Zoom, or over the phone, Monday - Friday.

Most appointments are 30 minutes, but you might want to consider a full hour (two 30-minute slots) if you are an initial transfer student (scheduled in the months prior to your first semester), initial academic probation appointments, or if you are returning from academic suspension.

We encourage you to meet with your advisor regularly so they may get to know you and provide you with information on relevant opportunities for your academic and career goals. The more we know you the better we can serve you!

Contact our Student Recruitment Specialist at ascas@unm.edu and they can meet with you, give you more information, or help you get in touch with the right people.

Transfer student?
Already know your intended major?
Prospective students who know what they likely want to study are welcome to make appointments with advisors to learn more about specific programs.

To make these appointments as fruitful as possible for both you and our advisors, please come prepared to talk about your interests and goals, and bring any specific questions you might have about a program/major. You can also list your specific interests when making your LoboAchieve appointment.
Examples: "I am a transfer student from Arizona. Interested in becoming a psychiatrist. Should I double major in biology and psychology?"
"I would like to get involved in international human rights research."
