Scheduled Appointments

Professional advisors use campaigns through myWildcatSuccess to invite their assigned advisees to schedule their required appointments. If you’ve been invited to a campaign, you will receive an email to your UNH student email.

Here’s how to schedule:
  • Open the email your advisor sent you.
  • Read the email thoroughly for important information about how to prepare for your appointment.
  • Click the scheduling link.
  • You will be brought to their calendar to select a day and time, click through the calendar to find the day and time that works best for you
  • Read through the appointment confirmation details carefully.
  • “How would you like to meet?” Appointment Modality
    NOTE: Pay close attention to whether the appointment is in-person or virtual.
    • Some of our services will have a pre-determined modality. This means that you will not be able to choose the modality. Be sure to make note of the modality listed on the appointment confirmation and plan to attend accordingly.
    • Some of our services allow you to choose your appointment modality. If you see both the in-person and virtual options in the drop-down menu, you will be able to choose your preferred appointment modality from the menu. Be sure to make note of the modality you choose and plan to attend accordingly. Last minute appointment modality changes cannot always be accommodated.
  • Add any comments you’d like your advisor to know ahead of time.

In an effort to provide advising to all students, UNH Manchester Academic Advising has a no-show policy. This policy is not designed as a punishment; rather, it serves as a reminder to be respectful of the time of other students and advisors. 

We understand that life happens, and schedules can change unexpectedly. Students can cancel appointments through myWildcatSuccess, calling 603-641-4170, or emailing unhm.advising@unh.edu at least 24 hours before the appointment. 

A no-show is noted in the system if: 

  • A student arrives more than 10 minutes late for an appointment 
  • A student fails to cancel an appointment at least 24 hours in advance 

Repeated no-shows (2 or more) will jeopardize your ability to schedule future advising appointments.
