How do I make an appointment with an OAAS advisor?
It's easy! Just call 773-325-7431 to schedule an appointment. To help

such as your ID number, what major you’re thinking about and what kind

Which students can meet with an OAAS advisor?
Our advisors will work with all LAS, CSH, and CMN undeclared or
exploratory students. Additionally, we will see students from any
college who are declared majors but who are exploring alternative or
additional academic options.
Does OAAS have walk-in advising?
Yes! During the first week of the term and during registration, OAAS
offers walk-in advising on a first-come, first-served basis. Walk-in
sessions are typically 20 minutes long and address the more immediate
concerns you might have. We may offer additional walk-in days as needed.
Please call 773-325-7431 for more information on upcoming walk-in
Once I declare my major, can I still meet with an OAAS advisor?
Our advisors work with undeclared and exploratory students only. If you
are declared in a major and intend to keep it, you should no longer meet
with an OAAS advisor. You will be assigned a major field advisor who
will be able to help you.
Feel free to call your academic department and ask who your new assigned advisor will be. You can use the DePaul Online Directory to locate your department's phone number.
