What is “virtual college advising”?
Virtual advising is the opportunity for you to work one-on-one with a well-trained college advisor using the technology you use every day, including text, Google Hangouts, Skype, email and phone. Because your advisor is “virtual,” you don’t need to wait to get an in-person appointment — you can connect with an advisor whenever you need to, from wherever you are.
