Advising & Registration sessions are being offered both in-person and remotely to accommodate your needs during COVID-19. For virtual sessions, advisors are working with students through a combination of email, phone and Zoom. When scheduling a remote session, your advisor will be in touch with specific information about how your Advising & Registration session will be conducted and how to prepare.
