Advising by Appointment 

Appointments can be for in-person, on the telephone, Skype or Collaborate advising.  To schedule an appointment, you can do so at  http://coeosas.appointy.com/ or call (808) 956-7915 and indicate what type of advising and which advisor you prefer.

Express Advising

Quick questions and general information on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the week, except Thursdays.  Express advising is not for transcripts, evaluations, and other advising activities that take more than 5 - 7 minutes to complete.

Walk-In Advising

For all OSAS-related services at peak times throughout the year, such as registration periods.  During those peak times, students can walk-in and are advised on a first-come, first-served basis throughout the week, except Thursdays


Collaborate is a web-based program allowing for collaboration with text, audio, and video.  Collaborate also offers the capabilities to share documents or a common workspace.  While sharing your documents, you can talk to and ask questions of your advisor.  Take five minutes to watch the Collaborate Tutorial first.  Required: Java Script and microphone is required, and that should already be installed on your computer.
