Zoom Meeting Tips

  • Test your video and sound equipment before your appointment. Adjust the volume or location of your webcam as necessary. 
  • Bring any questions or concerns: To have the most productive academic advising appointment possible, review your Degree Audit in advance. Have some questions prepared. 
  • Choose an appropriate environment: Find a quiet space, so your Staff Academic Advisor doesn't have to strain to hear you. Wearing earphones is a good idea. Last, but not least, position yourself so the light faces you, not behind you, so your Staff Academic Advisor can see you clearly.
