How to Meet with an Advisor

  1. New students first complete the admissions process and the START orientation.
  2. Either make a 30–minute appointment ahead of time or follow our drop–in procedures described below:

Make an Appointment

  • In Person: Come to the Advising Office (BE1102D) during regular business hours
  • By Phone: Call the appointment line at: 206.934.4068

For general inquiries, email us at

Drop–In Advising

Please follow the drop–in instructions below.

  • Monday: 1 p.m.–4 p.m.
  • Tuesday: 9 a.m.–12 p.m.
  • Thursday: 1 p.m.–4 p.m.
  1. Students must pick up numbered tickets from the Advising office any time before drop–in begins. Tickets are given out on a first–come, first–serve basis.
  2. The numbered ticket holds your place in line to choose a drop–in time—it does not guarantee that you will see an advisor.
  3. Students should return to the Advising office 5 minutes before the start of drop–in. They will be called up to the front desk in number order to choose a spot when drop–in begins. Have your photo ID ready.
  4. If a student is not present when their number is called, we will skip them and take the next person in line. If a student arrives after their number was called, they must wait until the advisors finish calling numbers to choose a drop–in time.
  5. We will use the digital clock in the Advising lobby as our reference.

Plan Ahead, Call Early

Non–registration periods between weeks 3 and 7 are good times to schedule an advising appointment. Appointments and drop–in advising times fill quickly so we recommend stopping by the office in BE1102D for more information. Our office becomes very busy during peak registration times, sometimes students have to wait so plan early.

Note: If you are more than 10 minutes late to your appointment, it will need to be rescheduled so that the next student will not be delayed. To cancel your appointment, please call Advising: 206.934.4068.

Please bring the following to your Advising Appointment:

  • Photo ID
  • College transcripts from other schools you have attended (official or unofficial)
  • Any advising and educational planning information received from previous advising sessions (AA degree sheets, long–range plans, test scores, etc.)
  • Any transfer information you have on your prospective university or intended major

We cannot check student records by phone or email as it violates the Family Educational Rights and Privacy Act (FERPA).
