Virtual Advising

Students are always welcome to visit Grand Rapids, MI, but are not required to do so. Alternative means of scheduled advising sessions include telephone or scheduling an appointment to use the online educational environment ( Wimba). Advisors will setup a day and time for advising sessions which will occur at least once-a-year. During these sessions, students can ask questions, get information, clarifications, and find out which courses are available in the future. Students can also contact their academic advisor by phone or e-mail when they have questions about the program, courses, etc.
