Appointments & Drop-in
Advising & Career Services (ACS) offers both academic advising and career counseling on a drop-in or appointment basis. If you have questions about whether your needs are better addressed during drop-in hours or with an appointment, please call us at 503-725-4005.
See the schedule below for information about drop-in.
Exploratory/Undeclared Advising Appointments
Exploratory/Undeclared students should meet with their adviser in ACS at least once per term until declaring a major. After declaring a major, advising will happen in the major.
Advisers in ACS are assigned based on the last two digits of the PSU ID number. If you are not a current PSU student and do not have a PSU ID number, any of the advisers below can help you!
Advising appointments may be scheduled for 30 minutes or one hour depending on the topic.
Career Counseling Appointments
Current PSU students and alumni are encouraged to make an appointment with a Career Counselor to explore careers and discover the career development tools available to them.
Career counseling appointments are scheduled for one hour.
Current PSU students and recent graduates are encouraged to make an appointment with our Internship Coordinator, Jeanne Ellis, but if you have additional topics to discuss, you can also meet with a Career Counselor to explore internships.

Students on Academic Warning or Probation
Academic Advising drop-in interactions typically last 15-20 minutes and are meant to answer quick questions or get started on petitions. This time allows undergraduates whose major is undecided/undeclared or who are considering a change of major to get answers to quick questions such as schedule changes or graduation requirements.
Career or Internship drop-in sign-up begins at 12:45pm. Spots are 20 minutes long and begin every twenty minutes starting at 1pm. The last spot begins at 2:40 and ends at 3pm. You must appear in person to sign up. They are best for completed resume and cover letter checks or information about starting your job search.
Please check the calendar below or call our office prior to coming to confirm our drop-in hours for the day you intend to visit.
