Daily Online Group Advising Sessions (Drop-In Hours):

Please be aware that the Virtual Drop-In Hours will be an open space to conduct group advising via Zoom. Anyone with the link below can enter the meeting space at any time, so it’s not the space for personal conversations. Our new format will allow us to address more personalized questions when more than one advisor is in attendance. Schedule an appointment on Advisor Link for more personal conversations.  You can use Zoom through your web browser or download the app. Professional Advisor Drop-in Hours are offered throughout the calendar year- except holidays and cancel dates posted on Pre-Health Canvas and website home page.
