Drop-ins for The A Center 

If you have a quick question, you can attend our drop-in hours instead of making an appointment. If your appointment exceeds this time frame, you will be scheduled for an appointment. The A Center offers drop-ins during the following times and we will stop taking appointments 15 minutes prior to the listed time:

  • Mondays | 1:30pm-4pm AZ time
  • Tuesdays | 1:30pm-4pm AZ time
  • Wednesdays | 10am-1pm AZ time
  • Thursdays | 10am-1pm AZ time
  • Fridays | 12pm-4pm AZ time
You can access the drop-in queue via The A Center Undeclared and Major Exploration Group Calendar (tutorial here).

Advisors will see students on a first-come, first-serve basis. When you are available to be seen during those hours, you can add yourself to the virtual drop-in queue at The A Center Undeclared and Major Exploration Group Calendar; if you are meeting in person, you can add yourself to the queue in our lobby. If you are dropping in virtually, you will receive an an email with an advisor's Zoom link and should join immediately upon reception of that email. You cannot schedule drop-ins in advance - add yourself when you are ready to be seen during our posted hours. If you are not in the Zoom room or lobby within 5 minutes of an advisor picking you up, we will move on to the next student and you will need to re-add yourself to be seen

Please call the office at 520-621-7763 if you are experiencing difficulties adding yourself to the drop-in queue.
