MCB advising office - hours of operation
The MCB Advising Office is open 8:30 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday.
If you are feeling ill but need to meet with an advisor, we ask that you schedule a virtual Zoom meeting. If you have a previously scheduled in-person appointment, please email or call or office to switch to virtual. We hope to keep our staff and other students healthy throughout the semester and appreciate your assistance.

Should you need to miss class due to illness, please follow the guidelines found in the syllabus or website for each individual course. If you need an absence letter for an extended absence from class (3 or more days) please contact the Student Assistance Center through the Office of the Dean of Students
No appointment needed. Stop by the advising office if you have questions or would like to discuss a topic such as your career path or possible on-campus opportunities. Drop-in times will resume for the school year beginning Friday, August 18th. See our calendar below for daily times. Drop-ins do not have a specific length, but you might be asked to make a full appointment if other people are waiting.
