Student advising will continue in a virtual manner, using video, online and/or mobile platforms, as well. All CDC guidelines will be followed for in-person appointments.  
    How will Talent Search advising appointments be scheduled and accomplished?    
          Each advisor will schedule and conduct in-person or virtual advising by appointment with their students through virtual platforms, email or phone meetings. TSI testing is being offered virtually or in-person. Please call or email your advisor to set up your testing date. COVID-19 Active Screening Questionnaire must be submitted before meeting for in-person appointments.
