Drop-In Advising

For the Fall 2021 semester, Academic Advisors will not hold drop-in advising hours. To make an appointment with an Academic Advisor, please visit our Academic Advising page. Drop-in advising is available with our Peer Advisors, Ben and Katherine, in person or remotely via Zoom during the hours listed below.

In person advising will be in the International Studies Major office in room 301 of Ingraham Hall 1155 Observatory Dr, Madison, WI 53706. Remote advising can be accessed via the Zoom links below. For each advisor, remote and in-person advising take place during the same hours. We ask that you please be patient if the advisor is busy with another student.

*Don’t forget that an IS Workshop must be completed with a Peer Advisor during their office hours below prior to declaring the major.
