Lee Martínez - FAQs: Frequently Asked Questions

Thank you for contacting Lee Martínez, Academic Advisor for the School of Business at Salt Lake Community College.   You are also welcome to visit our website at www.slcc.edu/academicadvising for additional information. Thank you for your interest in your community's college.

In the meantime, this automatic response provides information that answers most questions I receive.  If you need immediate assistance, please refer to the General Advisors.

1)      APPOINTMENTS:  Students schedule their own appointments online via this website:  http://www.slcc.edu/academicadvising/advisors.aspx.  My Office is located in the School of Business, 2nd floor.

   Mornings:  Appointments not needed.  Unscheduled Walk-In meetings on first come-first serve basis.  These times appear blocked out on the appointment calendar to avoid students making appointments in these times.
   Afternoons:  Scheduled appointments only: 

       A monthly schedule is regularly posted outside my office.  My availability is limited during rush (end of semesters and beginning of next semesters), and considerably open during mid-semesters.  To avoid long waits, students are encouraged to see me outside of rush times, otherwise, please understand the wait.  

My office is located on the second floor of the School of Business, Taylorsville-Redwood campus:  BB 226E (by the Dean's Office)
      Please plan ahead!

2)    NEW STUDENT ADVISING:  New students can easily be served by any general advisor for your first or second semester scheduling.  I generally see advanced students or those with complicated issues, or preparing to graduate and transfer.

3)    ONLINE, EMAIL OR PHONE ADVISING:  I can provide brief, general answers to many general questions via email or phone.  Longer or complicated answers require a meeting.  If you are requesting advising via email, please email me your questions via your BruinMail account, otherwise, you will need to submit a Release of Information for email and telephone advising.  For Telephone Advising, it's always best to schedule a regular appointment and send me an email notifying me our meeting is to be an email or phone meeting.  Otherwise, the Release of Information which will inform me this is intended to be a Telephone Advising session.  I will call you as close to the appointed time as possible.  

4)    PHONE CALLS:  I consistently receive a large number of phone calls, even more during rush. Phone messages or emails asking for an appointment or advising by phone won't be returned.

5)    SUBSTITUTIONS OR WAIVERS - SLCC's procedure for Substitutions and Waivers is called Curriculum Exceptions.  Students can access the Curriculum Exception Appeal online via their MySLCC account under the Academic & Records, Academic Planning, then to Curriculum Exceptions.  That will take you to a separate page.  Choose between Substitution or Waivers. Fill in the appropriate information and explain the reasoning in the comment box.  If you need assistance, any advisor can assist you with this. 

6)    MAXIMUM TIME FRAME AUDIT - If you need a Maximum Time Frame Audit completed, please send me an email with your name, S#, Major, Return Phone Number.  If it's a relatively easy one, I will complete and submit it with a copy to you. If it's one requiring a meeting, I will let you know to make an appointment.

7)   SLCC PROMISE – These requests for a complete schedule for the SLCC Promise require some time.  Please schedule an appointment for these. In a few cases, if you are almost completed with your program of studies, you can send me an email requesting me to check. I can easily determine whether I can complete the SLCC Promise plan without an appointment, of if you do need to make an appointment to come in.
I hope this helps.
