Schedule a Virtual Advising Appointment

Academic advising will take place virtually during the Summer 2020 semester, as we are unable to conduct in-person meetings. To schedule a virtual meeting, click on the "Schedule an Appointment" button below, and select an advisor based on your campus and program of study.

All virtual meetings will be conducted on Google Meet, and you must have access to a webcam and microphone to utilize this service. To comply with FERPA, students will be asked to show a valid photo ID before each appointment. If you are not able to do a virtual meeting, you can reach out to the advisors at the emails and phone numbers below.
