What is Pop-In Advising?
This is an opportunity to meet with an academic advisor via Zoom during Pop-In Advising hours, no appointment necessary! Once you join, you will be notified via text message when it’s your turn to meet with an academic advisor in the Zoom meeting room (messaging rates may apply).

What's wonderful about virtual academic advising is that we still meet face-to-face, but you can meet from the comfort of your home or office (please no driving during your zoom session). You will need a secure internet connection, a webcam and microphone. Students can use a smart-phone, tablet, laptop and/or desktop.

Note: We will be using ZOOM for the web meeting. You will need a photo ID ready so we can confirm your identity.

How to Join (2 options):

  • Use this link to login to join the virtual line
  • Text to join the virtual line: text HowardCC to 443-221-4393

What Happens Next?
You will receive text message updates about your wait time. Once an academic advisor is ready for you, you will be sent a Zoom link to join Pop-In Advising where you will meet individually with an academic advisor.  If you are joining Zoom on your computer, the Zoom meeting ID number is located at the end of the link after the “/”. You can also type the received Zoom link you receive into your preferred browser.
