Scheduling an appointment

Students should schedule an appointment using the MSU Student Success Dashboard. Go to

Advisors post available times 1-2 weeks in advance. If the schedule is full, that only means nothing is available for the next week or two.  Please check back later for a cancellation at any time, and understand that we add new appointment times to the schedule once we notice they are full.

The IDS advising staff includes Nicolas Gisholt, Regan Kania and Lauren Muñoz.

Due to COVID-19 precautions, effective March 12 through the end of the fall semester, all appointments will take place over the phone or via Zoom.  Include your cell phone number in the comments when you book your appointment. Zoom appointment information will be sent to you once you've scheduled your appointment in Dashboard.

In the event MSU employees are asked to work from home, we may have additional communication methods.  They will be posted here.  Our goal is to answer all your questions, but please understand that we may not be able to reply as quickly as we would like.

We look forward to speaking with you!
