HomeAcademic Advising


Using the Advising Center

The CLAAAC helps students plan curriculum, choose majors, explore career opportunities and post graduate plans. All of our professional advisors are available to answer questions regarding General Education (GenEd), College, and Major requirements in CLA. Advisors are typically available from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and all appointments are scheduled for 30 minutes. If you are a continuing student and would like to meet with an advisor you may come in to the advising center or call 215-204-7971  (press option #5) to set up your appointment.  We also offer advising at the Ambler and TUCC campuses. Please call 267-468-8200 to schedule an appointment at Ambler. If you wish to be advised at TUCC please contact Paula Robison.

At the main campus same day appointments are available on a first-come, first-served basis. It is best to come in early in the morning of the day you would like to see an advisor, as the schedule can fill up quickly during peak times. At the beginning of the semester, during priority registration and new student orientations, many students utilize our services, so it is best to plan ahead!

During non-peak times you may schedule a future appointment five business days in advance.
