PLEASE NOTE: The majority of HPO advising appointments for the spring 2022 semester will be held virtually. A limited number of in-person appointments will be made available periodically on the Busch campus. 

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, program, grades, etc.

There are currently three ways students can go about speaking with an HPO advisor:

  • Virtual Walk-in Hours and Online Chat (Ask the Advisor option) 
  • 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 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. and one of the HPO advisors will get back to you.

For general questions, our friendly and knowledgeable HPO staff is available Monday - Friday (1:00pm - 5:00pm) - Online Chat (General Questions option)

We also have helpful and trained Peer Mentors (hours vary)
