(If you have not been admitted to Broward you will not be able to schedule an advising appointment. Email bcrecruiting@broward.edu to request information. Include your name, program of interest, and contact information.)

In these cases, you must walk-in to the campus office, or contact the specific advising department at the home campus to try and resolve the issue during work hours. See https://students.broward.edu//resources/advising.

*Only degree-seeking students are assigned an academic advisor. The assignment is based on your home campus, last name, and pathway. The pathway is determined by the degree program.
