You may come by Behavioral Science room 301 for Walk-In Hours during the Fall and Spring semester.

Walk-in Hours are designed for quick questions.

If the advisor covering Walk-in Hours cannot assist you with your particular question(s) he or she may schedule an appointment for you.

 

CURRENT WALK-IN HOURS:

  • Mondays         10:30am-noon
  • Tuesdays         3:30pm-5:00pm
  • Wednesdays   9:00am-10:00am and    12:30pm-2:00pm
  • Thursdays       3:30pm-5:00pm

**There are no walk ins during Fall Break, Spring Break, or Finals Week  – please contact your HDFS advisor to set up an appointment with her/him during these times.

***There are no walk ins during Summer – please contact your HDFS advisor to set up an appointment with her/him during summer.

Students interested in changing their major to Human Development and Family Studies (HDFS) or Early Childhood Education (ECE), adding either as a second major, or simply exploring the majors, must meet with an adviser.

If you are interested in HDFS, click on the link above to schedule an advising meeting and choose the CHANGE OF MAJOR option. You will be directed to schedule a change of major advising appointment time to meet with a Graduate Assistant or Peer Adviser that is convenient for you.

Change of major advising appointments with Graduate Assistants and Peer Advisers are held during fall and spring semesters, not during finals’ week or semester breaks. If you want to change your major during a semester break or during finals week – call the HDFS Undergraduate Advising Office main phone number (970) 491-4947.

If you are interested in ECE, you will click on the link above to schedule with your HDFS adviser (if already declared) or, if you are not an HDFS major, schedule your appointment to meet with the prospective ECE adviser.

Gerontology Interdisciplinary Minor advising is also available to those exploring, adding, or completing the minor. Click on the link above to schedule an appointment.
