NOTE: Due to extremely heavy demand, it is recommended that students come to our office early in the day to get a drop-in time, even if they want an afternoon timeslot. We start giving out timeslots at 9:00. Each timeslot is about 15 minutes.

Also note, SOUSA advisors have no authority to admit students to courses that are full. See the department which offers the course. See above for department contacts.
