Undergraduate Advising

The CSE advising office is operating remotely during Fall 2020. Most advising appointments are conducted virtually via Google Meet and are scheduled through the online scheduler linked in the button below. If you have a specific need for an in-person advising appointment, please email us at with your request.

Online scheduler info

You will be required to log in using your U-M uniqname and kerberos password. Once logged in, choose a reason for your appointment, advisor preference if you have one, and then select a time frame in which you would like to meet with an advisor. Click the “List Appointments” button and a list of all available appointments matching your criteria will be returned. If you don’t get any results, try expanding your search criteria. If you have questions or need assistance, please email us at

After making an appointment

  • A Google Calendar invite with a Google Meet link will be sent to you the morning of your appointment. At the time of your appointment, you may click the link to meet with your advisor via video chat.
  • Please have a copy of your unofficial audit and unofficial transcript open on your computer before the start of your appointment. These can be generated on Wolverine Access.
  • At the time of your appointment, please click the Google Meet link to join a video chat with your advisor. If your advisor has not yet joined the chat, please stay connected until they arrive. They may be finishing up their prior appointment, and will connect with you as soon as possible.
  • Please attempt to join the chat in a quiet location. If you are unable to use video during your chat, the Google Meet link can be used with voice only.
