Online Advising

We are available for online advising appointments every weekday 9 am - 4 pm. To make an online advising appointment, please follow the Step-by-Step Breakdown below:



2. Once you have booked your appointment, expect to be contacted via email by a Peer Adviser who will be facilitating your appointment.

3. On the day and time of the appointment, log into your GVSU Gmail account and await a Zoom link from [email protected]. This request will arrive approximately 5 minutes before your appointment time.

4. Once you have received the request from [email protected], click the Zoom link and give access to your camera and microphone (if desired). The Peer Adviser will be able to instruct you from here and will advise you virtually.



  • Have a pen and pencil handy for taking notes.
  • Prepare engaging questions and your goals for Study Abroad prior to the appointment.
  • Be in a quiet environment that allows you to hear and be heard.
  • Remain attentive throughout the session (put the phone away!)
