Step 5

Choose a date and time that works best for you. My Success Planner will display all available appointments, so if you do not see any availabilities on a particular day, these times are, unfortunately, already booked.
Remember: Drop-ins/Walk-ins are only available on Fridays. Also, you can schedule appointments until the day before finals begin, so schedule early and as soon as you know when an assignment is due. You can always have your appointment moved at a later time.
