Academic Advising

Academic Advising Information for Biology Majors

Hi – I’m Clay Cox, the assigned advisor for all biology majors. Feel free to make an appointment with me as often as you wish. I can get pretty busy right before and during registration each semester. It is better to look for an available advising appointment as soon as you can.

Please book an appointment in advance for most advising services. I also offer “walk-in” advising hours. Walk-in appointments are reserved for quick questions, signing forms, and scheduling questions only. Please book a regular appointment for most advising services.
Always sign in on the iPad in the front Office.

Email Advising Questions: Feel free to send me an email if you have a short question or two. Always include your student ID number with every email.Email me at: ccox@boisestate.edu. You can also reach me by phone at 208/426-2843. Be aware that I don’t answer the phone when I am with another student. I would actually prefer to receive an email instead!

Required Advising Holds

First time students (new and transfer) are required to meet with an advisor before they can register for their second semester classes. Book an appointment with me as soon as you see the Required Advising Hold appears on your student center.
