Advising Updates as of 7/6/2021
The Office of Academic Advisement & Retention is providing a variety of delivery models for academic advising to ensure we are able to meet the needs of all students. Our staff is working on campus and can meet with students face to face or virtually. Below are details that outline how you can meet with an advisor. This page will be updated regularly, so please continue to check for updates.
Students who want to meet with their advisor should continue to schedule an appointment as normal. You can

being able to meet with the advisor. If you wanted additional people (parents/guardian, spouse, etc.) to attend the appointment we then encourage you to select a virtual appointment when you schedule.
Virtual Express Advising is a service designed for students who have quick questions such as information about our programs or courses, signatures for withdrawal forms, or change of majors. Express advising is
designed for 30 minute sessions like you would have by making an appointment with your academic advisor. Express Advisors are unable to assist with FASFA (financial aid) related questions or questions about your bill. Please contact the financial aid office or the business office for these types of questions. To get in line to see an Express Advisor and receive immediate assistance, please visit, https://www.rcsj.edu/gc/express
If you are a student who requires a PIN number you
either make an appointment to meet with your assigned Academic Advisor or see an advisor in Express Advising.
