Thirty-minute appointments for incoming students are available starting Monday, June 22 and will run throughout the summer. Scheduling for required summer conferences will open in early June; you will receive an email notifying you when you may begin scheduling appointments with your Assigned Academic Adviser. Appointments can take place by phone or by video call.
