    NSM Advisors will resume in-person appointments starting September 1. Students attending in-person should perform a health check prior to their in-person appointment. If you are exhibiting any symptoms of illness, please notify your advisor at least 30 minutes before your scheduled time to determine if alternate arrangements can be made to deliver a remote appointment instead.

  • Phone Option
    Students who prefer a phone conversation should email their advisor at least 30 minutes before their scheduled appointment time to make necessary arrangements.
  • Cancellations
    Students unable to meet virtually at their scheduled time should cancel and reschedule the session via Navigate.
