The Advising and Mentoring Center will provide online advising and mentoring for the rest of the semester via Blackboard Collaborate to all freshmen and MDS students. We have adapted our services to meet your needs via virtual sessions.

Advising services will be available online Monday – Thursday from 8:00 am to 6:00 pm and Friday 8:00 am to 3:00 pm.  To sign-up for online advising, please continue to use our Calendly appointment scheduler at the bottom of our webpage to schedule an appointment with your assigned advisor (name is at the top of your DegreeWorks). The link to your assigned advisor's calendar can be found at the bottom of this page.

Mentor meetings for the rest of the semester remain as scheduled, however, your mentor will be sending you an email for instructions on using Blackboard Collaborate to access your mentor meeting. Your meetings will be held at your regularly scheduled day and time.

To practice social distancing, we will no longer provide face to face services in our offices for the remainder of the semester.
