Important Advising Information

CCSE Advising will be available March 16 through the end of the semester. Virtual/phone advising is available for students who need assistance. We will not have any face-to-face availability unless it is an emergency and no other option is viable, in which case you should contact  to schedule a face-to-face appointment. We cannot schedule same day face-to-face appointments.

The primary modality of advising is shifting in consideration of the current health concerns to minimize the potential spread of any viruses, but still provide service and assistance to students. The advising team will be conducting virtual and phone advising appointments during our normal office hours.

We strongly encourage students to utilize virtual/phone advising appointments or contacting us via email ( instead of coming in person for advising. Virtual/phone advising appointments are 30 minutes long.

  • Registration for Summer/Fall semesters will begin on Monday, March 16th and time tickets will continue to open for two weeks.  During registration, advisors will primarily assist via virtual/phone appointments and email correspondence to maintain as much structure to responses and information flow as possible. 

    Please make sure to check for your time ticket on the Registration tab of Owl Express.

  • We're expecting a high demand on email during the first two weeks of registration. To help you as quickly and effectively as we can, please send only one email containing what you need, and you need to format your emails to include the following information:


    1. KSU ID# (000...)
    2. Your last name
    3. Brief description of request (e.g. registration issues, class recommendations, etc)

    • Please be as direct as possible and only send one that encompasses everything
    • What do you need from us?
    • If you have questions, please list them in a numbered format
    • Explain any backstory concisely

    We will be working quickly, but please note that demand is going to be high - you might notice that our responses are short and straight to the point.

  • During the scheduling process for virtual/phone advising, you will see the additional details for how to get in contact with the advisor you're signing up for.

    Virtual Advising: We will be using either Microsoft Teams or Blackboard Collaborate. Please read the "additional details" area when you schedule your appointment to see which one and what to do.

    To use Microsoft Teams without downloading it, you will log in to your student Outlook email account ( from Google Chrome or Microsoft Edge. After logging in, in the upper left-hand corner, you will see 9 dots in a square next to the word “Outlook”. Click these dots. Teams should be the 4th option on the right-hand side list of Apps that comes up. Click the “Teams” app.

    We will email you an invitation/link if we're using Blackboard Collaborate.
