What if I have questions for my advisor now?

We ask that you please wait to reach out to your advisor until after completing a live session. We will be covering A LOT of information during the live session that will be very valuable and will address many of your initial questions. After the live session, you will have an opportunity to have a drop-in advising appointment with your advisor or schedule an appointment for a later date.
