Scheduling Appointments with your Advisor
Declared Economics majors are encouraged to log in to Buff Portal Advising to schedule individual advising appointments. It is designed to show a two-week window of availability. Upon logging in, if you are unable to locate an appointment time within this two-week window, expand the time selection and choose a later appointment. Economics majors and minors are encouraged to email their advisors with basic questions as our advisors are constantly emailing students in between appointment times. Because our advisors maintain full appointment schedules each week, they are unable to respond to phone calls. Please email or schedule appointment times through Buff Portal Advising for the quickest way to engage the advising team.
