Advising Walk-in Hours
ECS advisors will be available virtually Monday through Thursday, 3-4 PM, for students to ask questions via Microsoft Teams messages or video calls. These conversations typically include (but are not limited to) dropping a class, registration issues, study abroad plans, signing ROTC/AFROTC forms, and questions about academic resources. Due to the high volume of students who visit during Walk-in Hours, we ask that students keep the visit to 5 minutes or less. For questions that require a longer discussion, please e-mail your advisor to inquire about appointment availability.
We recommend that all students download Microsoft Teams on their computer and add the app to their iPhone or android device. You are more than welcome to message your advisor throughout the day, and we will respond during walk-in hours or as soon as possible. We will address messages and requests for video calls in the order they are received. Even though Teams is an instant messaging app, remember to always communicate professionally (with proper grammar/punctuation), just as you do with all Baylor faculty/staff. If you have a question outside of business hours (Monday-Friday, 8am-5pm CT), please either e-mail your advisor or wait until business hours resume to send a Teams message.
Our advising team is eager to support you and wants to provide you with the highest quality advising experience. However, we also want to empower you to navigate resources on your own when they are easily accessible. So, we ask that you search the Baylor website and your Undergraduate Catalog before contacting your advisor with questions. If you’re not able to find the answer on your own, please reach out to us! Our hope is that we can still be very accessible, despite not being able to interact with you in person!
