Academic Advising

    Academic advisors can address questions and help students make informed decisions regarding registration, graduation and career planning, major selection, university and academic policies, and making connections to the right offices and services. We also support faculty advisors in addressing students’ needs. If you are unsure where to go, advising is a great place to start!

    Who is my advisor?

    Locate your advisor's name and contact information in Workday.

    •  New first-years: Your first-year seminar instructor will serve as your advisor until you officially declare a major. Then, you will be reassigned to an advisor in your major.
    •  New transfers: You will be assigned to a faculty advisor in the major you indicated on your Hamline application. Undecided transfers are assigned to an advisor in the Center for Academic Success and Achievement.

    Meet with a CASA advisor


    Appointments are required to meet with a CASA advisor. Same-day appointments are reserved for students who wish to set up a leave of absence, are considering withdrawing from Hamline, or have a time-sensitive matter.

    Schedule an appointment:

    •  Online: Log in with your Hamline email credentials and click the “Schedule Appointment" button.
    • Call us at 651-523-2912.
    • Stop by the CASA front desk on the lower level of Bush Memorial Library.

     When requesting an appointment, include your name, ID number, phone number, appointment mode (virtual or in-person), and reason for the appointment. 


    Walk-ins are scheduled during high traffic advising times during the semester, and are intended for quick 5-10 minute inquiries that do not require an advisor to prep or review your academic record (e.g. how to declare a major, how to add/drop a course, where to locate a resource). CASA will hold walk-in hours during the following times:

     Drop/Add deadline: Monday, February 7 and Tuesday, February 8: 9-11am and 2-4pm

     Registration Week: Monday, April 11–Friday, April 15: 9-11am and 2-4pm
