How Do I Schedule an Appointment?

Advising appointments are scheduled through NavigateMason.  Instructions are below for current CRIM major advising, as well as advising for non-CRIM majors (minors, prospective change of majors, etc.). 


Appointment Policies/Expectations

  • Appointments can be made no less than 8 hours in advance of the selected start time.
  • If you are 15 minutes late for your scheduled appointment you must reschedule; no exceptions.


Need to Cancel?

If you need to cancel your appointment, please do so with as much notice as possible. You may cancel and/or reschedule your appointment via NavigateMason, or by e-mailing your advisor in advance.


Walk-In Advising

For the Spring 2023 semester, in-person walk-in advising is held on Wednesdays from 10:30 a.m.-3:00 p.m. Please note that only 1-2 advisors will be on walk-ins on these days.  If you want to know when your assigned advisor will be available for walk-ins, please check their NavigateMason calendar.

Due to previously scheduled advising appointments and other administrative commitments, advisors cannot accommodate walk-ins outside of these days.  If you are in need of assistance and unable to meet with your advisor during available times, please email them directly.
