Virtual Drop-in advising is meant to ONLY address the following:

  • Spring 2023 Course Enrollment
  • Change of Program Plans (Majors, 2nd Majors, Minors, and/or Pre-Law Certificate)
  • Class Permissions
  • Questions about specific requirements or policies
  • Advising and GPA Holds (except Orientation and PDC)

  • Pre-Law Advising is limited to adding/dropping the certificate and course recommendations

  • Advising and GPA Holds (except Orientation* and PDC Holds)

*Fully Online students with Orientation Holds must attend an Online Group Advising session (ask your advisor) or schedule an appointment with their assigned advisor. 

*On-Campus students with Orientation Holds must attend Orientation. Please register for a session via MyFIU.

To schedule an appointment, please follow the instructions under the "Schedule an Appointment" section of this page: https://acs.fiu.edu/online-tools/panther-success-network/tutorials/index.html.

If you need to meet with an advisor before then and your concern can be addressed during Drop-in Advising, please attend. If you do not see an appointment, then all the appointments have been booked. Appointments open weekly and sometimes (rarely) other students may cancel, so please check back regularly or attend Drop-in Advising. 

If you do not know how to enroll in classes, please see https://onestop.fiu.edu/classes/register-for-classes/.  

If you have an Orientation Hold, please make sure to attend Orientation for Spring 2023 which is two parts: Virtual Orientation and Academic Advising Orientation. For more information on Orientation and how to register, please see https://studentaffairs.fiu.edu/campus-services/orientation-and-family-programs/undergraduate-orientation/index.php

If you are a Transfer Student or Fully Online student with an Orientation Hold, please check your FIU email for instructions regarding a group orientation session. 

If you are trying to enroll in a class asking for a permission number, click "accept" and move forward. Most of the time, this is a glitch in the system. You should still be able to enroll in the class. If this does not work, then you will need permission. 

For ECO 4903, please attend Drop-in Advising to get permission. Department Consent Required: Senior standing with priority given to students in their last semester.  Students must meet with their assigned Academic Advisor in Economics or attend SIPA Drop-In Advising to be granted permission: https://sipa.fiu.edu/academics/advising/
