Undergraduate Advising

Main Content

For appointments, students may use Starfish to schedule a meeting with an adviser. For questions, please call 814-865-2329 or send an email to bioadvising@psu.edu. Anyone interested in the Biology major or minor can schedule an appointment with any adviser. For those intending to major in Biology we recommend meeting with an adviser each semester.

Location

We are located on the 2nd floor of the Ritenour Building. The reception area is Room 248A.  It is helpful to bring a transcript, degree audit, or advising notes from any previous advising appointments.

Walk-in/Drop-in Advising Hours: Spring 2019 (Jan. 7-April 26)

Walk-in Advising is useful for quick questions. If you have more than two items or issues to discuss, please call our office and schedule a full 30 minute appointment to better serve your needs.  Walk-in advising can be done in person or by phone.  We are here to help!

Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Fridays: 1 - 3 p.m.

Thursdays: Noon - 2 p.m.
