Make an Appointment

Instructions for Current Students:

The College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources and the Ratcliffe Hicks School of Agriculture have two levels of advising:

  1. Faculty and staff in each department are the primary source of information regarding course selection, degree requirements, and career planning. Students should always contact their departmental advisor first. Some departmental advisors use the online appointment system AdvApp ( and others prefer to schedule their appointments by email or phone.
  2. The Office of Academic Programs provides support to both departmental advisors and students. Students may meet with a professional advisor if advised to do so by their departmental advisor. Appointments with Jillian Ives, Patricia Jepson, and Meagan Ridder are scheduled online using Sandbox. If do not see any convenient times on the online appointment system, you may call 860-486-2919 to schedule an appointment.

Please contact your departmental advisor first before scheduling an appointment with Jillian Ives, Patricia Jepson, or Meagan Ridder.
