Schedule an appointment

To schedule an appointment with a counselor, click on the underlined names below. You will be directed to Calendly, a site where you can directly book a meeting with the counselor. Keep in mind, at the start of each semester, the Calendly might be closed as we’re working on schedules and enrolling new students. Students, once you schedule an appointment, is it up to you to come down during that scheduled time.
