Message regarding academic advising and COVID-19

The health of the Sun Devil community is a top priority at ASU. In a university-wide effort to recognize and proactively address recent concerns surrounding the novel corona virus (COVID-19), advisors will continue to work with students remotely. As such, we are still fully operational, but are providing services via remote mechanisms such as email, phone, and Zoom. Graduate and undergraduate advisors are available during our regular business hours, Monday – Friday 8AM – 12 Noon and 1PM – 5PM Arizona time. CIDSE Advising appointments are still regularly available via zoom and phone by going to We are committed to being able to continually support all of our students during this stressful time.

Please note:

  • Calls from the advising staff may come from unknown numbers as various technologies are being utilized to make outbound calls to students.
  • Emails may take up to 48 hours (2 business days) for responses during this remote time period. Please avoid sending duplicate emails as it keeps me from getting through all of your inquiries in a timely manner. Also, please ensure that you are including your ASU ID in every email if you would like a timely response.
