Remote Advising Overview 

Given the recent decision regarding the suspension of face-to-face classes, course scheduling and registration for the Spring Intersession, Summer 2020, and Fall 2020 semesters will now be handled remotely.

It may not be possible for the CMDA Office of Student Success to conduct the same level of in-depth advising you may be accustomed to, given the nature of a statewide public health emergency. Because we are working remotely, we ask that you seek advising in the follow ways:

  1. In preparation of scheduling for the Fall 2020 semester, utilize resources available to you, including the attached documents, links to online resources (below), and the general catalog BEFORE you reach out to us for help. Additionally, we ask that you start planning now and do not wait until the last minute to address scheduling concerns, as there will likely be delays in our response times.

  2. During this closure, we ask that your primary method of contact with us be via email. We realize this is different from what we usually ask you to do, but necessary at this time. Please DO NOT send multiple emails and DO NOT send the same email to both of us, as it will only delay our ability to respond to everyone in a reasonable amount of time. We will answer all emails in the order in which they are received.

  3. Should your situation be too complex to be handled by email, or you feel it would be more beneficial to discuss over the phone, you may schedule a phone advising appointment via the Navigate Student App. You must leave your cell number in the “Comment” when scheduling your appointment. An academic advisor will call you at the time of your appointment. (Your phone may display “no caller ID” when the advisor contacts you.) You must schedule a phone appointment at least 12 hours in advance, so again, please plan ahead. Appointments are limited to 15 minutes. Same day appointments and drop-in appointments are not available while we are operating remotely.

We anticipate many challenges during this unprecedented event, and we ask for your patience as we all work through this new environment together.
