College Archived Updates

College Academic Advising Office moves to remote appointments

Dear Student,

I am writing with an important update to the College Academic Advising Office and meeting with your adviser, a dean, or the adviser on call. Effective immediately, advisers will be available to meet with all students in the College via phone or Zoom, and will no longer be holding in-person appointments. We recognize this is a big change for us, a change we are making to help us to maintain the national guidelines for social distancing.

If you had a meeting scheduled with your adviser this week, your adviser or one of the deans in my office will be in touch with you to make alternate arrangements to hold the meeting either over the phone or via Zoom. Please continue to schedule appointments through You’ll be asked to provide a phone number when you do so that your adviser can reach you, and we will add the option of scheduling a Zoom meeting with your adviser.

We want to continue to serve our students during this time and appreciate your understanding as we try to navigate this territory that is new to all of us. Please take care of yourself and continue to reach out to your adviser. We remain committed to your success. We are all hoping for a swift end to this and look forward to the time we can meet with you again in person.
