  • The 10-15 minute quick and private session is with the on-call academic advisor.
  • Note: The technology used for these virtual meetings is "Zoom", which is a video and web conferencing solution offering audio, video, screen sharing, and much more. Students can join meetings using Windows, Mac, Linux, iOS, Android, or a telephone.
