Q: Who is my advisor?
A: All advisors can advise students in any program of study. To find a list of the advisors, visit our Staff page.
Q: Do I have to see my advisor to register for classes?

A: Call Eastfield Advisement’s front desk 24 hours before your scheduled appointment to allow another student to make an appointment in your slot. The number to call is 972-860-7106.
Q: I have already been advised for registration, but I want to change my schedule or I have additional questions. What should I do?
A: Please email your advisor directly or our general email account, email@example.com, about changing your schedule and any additional questions that you may have. Or, you may schedule another appointment to follow up with any advisor.
