Schedule An Appointment

Student Appointments (UPDATED)

Students: If you would like to make an hour-long appointment with one of the counselors, please schedule one through Handshake. If you do not have an account, you can quickly sign up for one using your Allegheny email at Once an account* is made, log in and go to the “Career Center” page and schedule an appointment. A step by step graphic is shown below to provide a helpful visual.

*When you log in, make sure that your profile has your “School Year” included, otherwise when scheduling an appointment, you will not be shown all the appointment types available to you. You will only be allowed to select “Pre-Law.”



If you need further assistance, please call (814) 332-2381 to schedule over the phone or you can stop by our office in The Gateway in Pelletier Library between 8:00 am and 5:00 pm Monday-Friday to schedule in person.

The counselors do not schedule appointments by email.

Drop-In Hours

We also offer Quick Questions drop-in hours every Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm while classes are in session.

Students can drop in without an appointment to speak with a counselor for 15-20 minutes during these sessions.

Requests from Campus Clubs or Organizations

If you are interested in scheduling a session with any of the career education counselors, please contact Rhonda Hershelman by email at and include the nature of the request, the topics you would like covered, and your dates of interest.
