PLEASE NOTE: Walk-in advising hours will continue to remain virtual. HPO advising scheduled appointments made via RU-Scheduler will be listed as either virtually or in-person on Busch Campus. Please be sure to make a note as to whether your scheduled appointment is virtual or in-person (which will be indicated on your appointment confirmation email).
Advising through this office is only available to Rutgers - New Brunswick students
It is recommended that currently enrolled Rutgers students meet with an HPO advisor at least once a year to make sure they are on the right track for their future goals. Students are welcome to meet with advisors more often and/or utilize walk-in hours, as needed if they have questions regarding classes, programs, grades, etc.
There are currently three ways students can go about speaking with an HPO advisor:
- Virtual Walk-in Hours
- Virtual Scheduled Appointments - 30-minute appointments that can be scheduled by logging on to RU-Scheduler or Online Chat (General Questions option)
- Email the advisor: If you only have 1-2 advising questions, please email your questions to
For general questions, our friendly and knowledgeable HPO staff is available Monday - Friday (1:00pm - 5:00pm) - Online Chat (General Questions option)
