BioAdvise Appointments

Appointments can be made up to two weeks in advance.

To schedule an advising appointment:

Select the appropriate button below based on your current student status:

*The Biology Advisors are not able to accomodate Phone Appointments. However, if you are not able to come to campus for an extenuating circumstance you can request a Skype Appointment by emailing

  • Skype appointments are not recommended and are only available in emergency situations that hinder a student from coming to campus. In-person appointments are more effective, so we recommend that you come to campus if it is possible.
  • If approved for a Skype appointment, you will be required to email a copy of your unofficial transcripts (including current courses) at least 24 hours in advance of your appointment, and follow the instructions laid out by the advisor who has approved your Skype appointment.

BioAdvise appointments are for current or incoming:

  • Biology majors
  • Microbiology majors

BioAdvise also offers advising appointments for prospective students, but we respectfully request that non-USF students do not make an appointment between the following dates:

  • Jan 1 to Jan 15
  • March 1 to May 15
  • Aug 1 to Sept 5
  • Oct 1 to Dec 1
