Undergraduate Advising Hours

The health, safety and well-being of our community members is very important to us. As of March 13, 2020, due to the current situation with COVID-19, we are offering remote undergraduate advising only. There are no in-person appointments at this time until further notice.

IMPORTANT information for Zoom advising appointments:

  • No reminder email will be sent.
  • Students who are more than 10 minutes late for their Zoom appointment will forfeit their appointment time.
