Meet with an Advisor

Drop-In Session

A drop-in session is NOT a scheduled appointment. When you sign in for a virtual or in-person session, you are added to the waiting queue to address your questions with the first available Academic and Career Coach. Drop-in sessions are available to current Belk College undergraduate students on a first-come, first-served basis.

Check the Drop-In Schedule


  • Step 1: Log into CONNECT
  • Step 2: Once on the "Appointments" page, click "Make an Appointment" (blue button at top right).

An Academic and Career Coach will call the phone number that is listed in your CONNECT account. Please only sign in when you're available to take a phone call. If you're experiencing technical difficulties, please call 704-687-7585.

We expect a high level of professionalism in the Belk College of Business and expect students to show up to scheduled meetings or reschedule in advance. This is respectful of our time as academic and career coaches and is also respectful toward your peers who would like to meet with us.

Peer Advisors

(*Pre-major students only) Upper-level business students also provide advising hours for pre-major students. Pre-major students can schedule with a peer advisor on CONNECT

Recently admitted freshmen and transfer Belk College undergraduates should attend a Student Orientation and Registration (SOAR) session for academic and career coaching and assistance with course registration.
