Academic Advising Update to Advisors

Published on Thu 03/19/20

Greetings:

Because of the COVID-19 pandemic, our institutional landscape continues to change very quickly. This week, instructors work to move their remaining course content online, removing all face-to-face interactions. As a precaution to the health and well-being of everyone, we are requiring all advising appointments be conducted online for the remainder of the spring semester.

Please take the remainder of this week to establish an online advising strategy. Training was provided Tuesday by two professionals who have used virtual advising for some time. The recording of the training and other resources can be found at: http://tx.ag/VirtualAdvising.

In rare instances a student may request a face-to-face meeting. Please direct the student to the Office for Student Success at 979-429-3662 or email studentsuccess@tamu.edu. The Office for Student Success will help coordinate the request with the student’s Academic Operations Committee Dean and Academic Advising Administrator.

As you make the transition to online advising for the remainder of the spring semester, please let us know what we can do to assist you.

Sincerely,
Carol A. Fierke
