Academic Advising


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. There are two options for scheduling a virtual meeting:

  1. If you know which advisor you'd like to speak with, you can contact them directly at the emails below! They can either answer your questions or schedule a virtual meeting. 
  2. To schedule a virtual meeting with any available advisor, complete the following form: Virtual Advising Request Form. An advisor will be assigned to your session and email you with more information. 

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.
