Please see the information below for instructions on how to access the Undergraduate Advising Center's (UAC) services remotely.
Advising appointments with continuing or new students will be conducted via Zoom video conferencing. Each UAC advisor has sent a communication out to their caseload informing advisees we are working remotely with instructions for joining appointments via Zoom. Invites to join Zoom appointments will be sent by advisor to advisee student email account day before scheduled appointment. For those students who don’t have access to a computer to effectively use Zoom, they will have the option to meet with a UAC advisor by phone appointment.
UAC advisees will continue to schedule appointments in Starfish or by emailing their advisor to request an appointment. If a student emails their advisor to request an appointment, we kindly ask each student to provide their advisor with the dates and times they are available to meet when making their request for an appointment.
UAC Advising staff contacts are provided below. If you don’t know who your advisor is or need to meet with a UAC advisor but are unsure of who to meet with, please contact the UAC Director, Nathan Domitrovich, at email@example.com or by calling (406) 243-2851 for assistance. For additional assistance, please email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
