Walk-In Thursday for Undergraduate Exercise Science and Public Health Students

Every Thursday from 9:00 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. current students may walk-in for advising without an appointment on a first-come, first-served, subject to capacity basis.

Procedure for Walk-In Thursday:

  • Check-in begins at 8:00 a.m. in the CONHI Office of Enrollment and Student Services (the advising area) and closes when the last appointment of the day has been filled. You will need to sign in with your UTA ID number.
  • Upon arrival, sign-in at the receptionist's window. After selecting a time slot, students are welcome to leave and return to the Office of Enrollment and Student Services (the advising area) ten minutes prior to their selected time to allow time to sign-in on the computer near the receptionist's window.
  • Be on time! If you are not present at your scheduled time slot you will lose your chance to meet with an advisor.
  • Students are seen on a first-come, first-served basis. Once capacity is reached for the day, Walk-In-Thursday may be closed. Arrival prior to 3:30 p.m. does not guarantee you will be seen if capacity is reached before the designated closure time. Students are encouraged to sign in early to avoid having to return at a later date.
