Tuesdays Drop-in advising

Students may meet with advisors for drop-in appointments, in person or virtual, every Tuesday from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. These meetings are designed to answer questions or address immediate needs a student may have.

Zoom meeting

After connecting through Zoom and once we open Virtual Open Advising/Office Hours on Tuesdays, you will enter the waiting room. The room moderator will ask your questions to determine how best we can assist you. When an advisor or staff member is available, we will move you to a breakout room to meet one-on-one with that advisor or staff member. You must accept the invitation to join the breakout room.

The virtual environment will function much like face-to-face Open Advising/Office Hours.  There may be a waiting time to meet with an advisor or staff member. In addition, advisors and staff members will be away during their lunch.
