How will my students meet with their academic advisor?
We will still be conducting our advising appointments at the times you have scheduled, but they will be virtual. The platform we will be using for these appointments is Microsoft Teams. Below is the information you will need to access your advising appointment:
- At your scheduled advising time, be sure you are logged into your Microsoft Teams account. If you are using your phone, make sure the camera/microphone option is on.
- Your advisor will then call you using the Microsoft Teams app.
- Accept the call using either the camera icon or telephone icon.
- Your advising appointment has begun.
If you have any further questions about this, please feel free to reach out to your advisor.
Will students be returning to physical classes before the end of the Spring 2020 semester?
