How to contact MariaPaula:

  • Email:
  • Ticket
    • If the ticket is related to any questions for MariaPaula, please specify in the title of the ticket “For MariaPaula ” so it can be sent to her.

Ticket Tips: 

  1. Please don’t submit multiple tickets for the same request in the same week, as it delays the response rate. 
  2. Provide as much detail as possible. This cuts down on the response time. We want to make sure you get the support you need in a timely manner, but we need your assistance too!

How appointments work:

Advisors meet with students based on pathways. Advisor calendars show availability 14 days in advance. If you do not see any appointments that meet your availability, please check back daily. Unless otherwise specified, appointments are around 30 minutes and are held virtually either by phone or microsoft teams video.

Prior to your advising appointment we recommend you review:

  • Degree Audit – Students can review degree audit to assist  in planning out their classes.  Log in, select the correct program of study, then run the audit.  It will track completed coursework towards the program and list course options for remaining sections.
  • Advising Syllabus – A resource created so that students can have support before, during, and after their advising appointments. It highlights things such as student learning goals, quarterly advising cycle, advising checkpoints, appointment checklist and much more.
  • Advising FAQ – The frequently asked questions are common questions (with answers) we receive in advising.
  • Appointment Types Offered – A detailed list of appointments students can schedule with our department.

If you have questions or concerns after reviewing the various pathways you can call our office at 425-564-2212 or submit a ticket.

Schedule An Appointment:

Interested in Same Day Advising?

During the first week of the quarter and first week of registration calendar availability changes. Instead of being able to see availability two weeks in advance, the calendar will open up one day at a time. This means that students will be able to schedule appointments on a first come first serve basis. We advise waking up at 8 am to book an appointment with an advisor so you can be see that day.
