While Summer 2020 Quarter remote learning is in effect, all advising appointments will be held via Zoom videoconference or phone. Virtual Drop-In hours will also be available via Zoom.
I. Prepare for your Appointment or Drop-In Meeting
Before booking an appointment with the SOP staff, please make sure you have completed the Prospective Recipient Information Form.
- Filling out this form includes adding your unofficial transcript(s) and a resume, so that the advising appointment can hone in on scholarships specific to you.
- If you are unable to submit the unofficial transcript(s) and resume via the form, please email them to email@example.com.
II. Book a One-on-One Advising Appointment (Year-Round)
III. Speak to a Student Advisor during Drop-In Hours
- During a Student Advisor's designated Drop-In Hours (see table below), please access our Zoom waiting room.
- The waiting room tool allows our staff to respect each student's privacy during busy Drop-In sessions. When you join the waiting room, the Student Advisor on duty will either add you to the meeting, or message you with an estimated wait time.
