Graduate Advising Remote Operations

COSC graduate advising is operating remotely. There are currently no in-person/face-to-face appointments nor walk-ins. Below are the current options for communicating with a graduate advisor:

  • Email - email your advisor below with your questions
  • Virtual Appointment - schedule an appointment through Microsoft Bookings. The default platform will be through MS Teams. Those who prefer a phone conversation should make note in the comments when booking the appointment
