Virtual Walk-in Hours

Each COB advisor will be offering virtual walk-in hours. If you have a quick question, please connect with your assigned advisor during their walk-in times via Microsoft Teams chat feature using your student account.

Note: virtual walk-in hours chat will only be monitored during the virtual walk-in times.

Topics for virtual walk-in hours include:

  • Troubleshooting course registration (Not schedule planning)
  • Questions about your already planned schedule
  • Add/Drop
  • Assistance with navigating a process, policy, campus, etc.

Anything else should be considered an appointment for which you would call our office to set up.
