For more information on the online appointment request process, please click here. All scheduled appointments will be completed using WebEx, though video is not required (but available). This platform will allow us to share our screen and review your degree sheet in real time. Your advisor will contact you 24 hours prior to your scheduled appointment to provide you with an updated degree sheet and log in instructions for your WebEx appointment.

Drop-In Hours

To request a Drop-In phone call: Students may request a return phone call during specified drop in hours (will be announced shortly).
