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:

STEP-BY-STEP BREAKDOWN:

1. BOOK AN APPOINTMENT

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 studyabr@mail.gvsu.edu. This request will arrive approximately 5 minutes before your appointment time.

4. Once you have received the request from studyabr@mail.gvsu.edu, 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.

 

ONLINE ADVISING TIPS:

  • 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!)
  • Keep in mind the possible technological difficulties (such as lagging and disconnection) and be prepared to follow directions from the Peer Adviser facilitating your session.
