Academic Advising


Academic Advising Appointments

Academic Advising is by appointment only, and appointments will be offered virtually and in-person for the summer semester. For quick questions, you can email or call an advisor directly at the contact information on this webpage! For longer conversations, you can schedule a 30-minute meeting with an advisor.

Virtual Meetings:  All virtual meetings will be conducted on Google Meet, and access to a webcam and microphone is helpful to utilize this service. To comply with FERPA, students will be asked to show a valid photo ID before each appointment. 

In-Person Meetings: If you schedule an in-person meeting, the meeting location will be provided in your confirmation email. Masks are required for meetings, and you will be required to complete a health survey upon entering Southern Union's campus.

For virtual meetings, the confirmation email will provide a link to the Google Meet.
