Please Note

Can’t see the advising line in the Qless app? This means we have manually closed the line because we are at capacity. Refresh the app or check the Qless website for the next spot in line.  If the Qless app or website says the advising line is “closed” this also means the line is at capacity.

If the line is full, consider signing up for one of our registration webinars.

If you are looking to request a general degree audit, graduation letter, after degree assessment, or Geoscience field school registration request, please submit the relevant online form. If you have already submitted a form request please do not send follow-up emails—sorting duplicates slows down our response time!

How to join the virtual advising line:

If the QLess app says that the advising line is “closed”, it means the line is at capacity, please check back at a later time. The best time to join the queue is at 9:45 am or 12:45 pm.

Join the queue for drop-in remote advising using the QLess app or the QLess website.

You will get regular notifications about your wait time. You can move freely around your home while you wait. You will get a message on your phone when your appointment is 10 minutes away and another when the advisor is ready to speak with you. 

No, you can check in on a computer using the QLess website.

You will receive a notification by text when you are 10 minutes from the front of the line, and another notification at the time of your appointment. You can also text “S” to check your status in line.
