Schedule an Advising Meeting



Advisment meetings are centrally organized through the office receptionists. Please call the office at 801-422-3065 to have an appointment organized with an advisor. 

Advising Queues are created to provide balance between each advisor's load so they can deliver personalized care and attention. Your advisor is usually based on the first letter of your last name.

How Often To See An Advisor

You should see a multicultural advisor at least once per semester, and whenever you have a question about your academic goals or experiencing challenges at BYU. There may be times when you are feeling confused or overwhelmed or generally unclear about what you are supposed to be doing. We are happy to help!
