Meet with an Advisor
Students can now enjoy more ways to meet with an Advisor; we've teamed up with WaitWhile to bring you even more options. You can make an appointment or join the line for same day service, online or on campus. You will get text message and email updates with further instructions regarding your meeting. Opt to meet face-to face on campus, or see us for Virtual Advising; if you prefer we can even give you a call, or send an email to your Cardinal Email account. You can get your meeting started by joining the waitlist anywhere you see the "Get on Waitlist" or "Meet with an Advisor" buttons, or you can check for campus specific information below.
*Please be aware registration services are not available Friday afternoons after 1:30 P.M..

Often times your email notifications may be being blocked by a spam box, or being sent to junk. You should be able to search your inbox for "TVCC" or "WaitWhile" to find these notifications. Once found, depending on your carrier, you should have the option to prevent future messages from being blocked/misfiled as junk mail.
Two ways to Sign Up:
Same Day Service
You can join the line for Same Day Service, and wait for your turn to meet with an advisor from anywhere. Just be sure you are prepared to be contacted via the method you indicated. Make sure your phone is not set to "Do Not Disturb" and keep an eye out for text message updates regarding your spot in line to see us and your meeting. Wait times are approximate.
Schedule an Appointment
If waiting in line isn't your style, you may choose to schedule an appointment. You will get text message and email confirmations once you have booked, as well as reminders day of. On your appointment date, be prepared to be contacted at your appointment time, and make sure your phone is not set to "Do Not Disturb". Appointment times are approximate.
Four Contact Methods to choose from:
An advisor will visit with you over the phone when it is your turn in the line for same-day-service, or at your booked appointment time. Please be aware not all services can be performed over the phone, but we will be glad to do as much as we are able.
An advisor will send you an email to discuss your advising needs when it is your turn in the same-day-service line, or at your booked appointment time. Please note that you must enter your Cardinal Email in order to contacted via email; all student account business must be handled through your Cardinal Email.
Meet on Campus Face-to-Face
Sometimes we just want to visit face-to-face. If you would like to visit with us in office on campus, we are happy to have you! Be ready to make your way to the Advisement Center when your turn in the line approaches.
Meet Virtually with Zoom
If face-to-face is more your style, but you can't make it to campus, virtual advising is for you. Once it is your turn to see an advisor, they will send you a Zoom Meeting ID and Password, via text message.
