While walk-ins are welcome, we often get busy and have a hard time accomodating all of the students who request sessions. Making an appointment is a great way to assure that we set aside an entire hour just for you! Just give us a call at (925) 631-4684.
Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Can I request a specific adviser?
Of course! If we forget to ask, just mention that you would like to work with someone in particular and give us his or her name. We will gladly schedule you with the adviser of your preference.
Why are you asking me so many questions?
When you call to schedule an appointment, we will ask you a few questions so that we can best accomodate your request. We will ask for your name, your phone number, and the class or topic that you are writing for. These pieces of information help us to make things run as smoothly as possible. We ask for your phone number so that we can contact you if, for example, we need to schedule you with an adivser other than the one who you requested.
Is there a penalty for missing an appointment?
There is no "penalty" for missing an appointment. However, in our inclusive community here at Saint Mary's, it is very rare for someone to miss an appointment without calling us beforehand. We ask that you let us know as soon as possible if you are unable to make your scheduled appointment, since this helps us to serve students who may otherwise be turned away.
