Please view the following series of short videos, which will guide you to your pre-advising materials in Blackboard:

Step 3: We contact you!

Once you have completed the pre-advising materials in Blackboard, watch for a phone call or email from an advisor within a week to schedule your one-on-one advising appointment.
