Zoom Advising Appointments

You will receive an email with a link to your Zoom Appointment. After your appointment, you will receive an e-mail with your updated academic worksheet discussed during your appointment. It is best if you use a computer for your appointment because we can share our screen with you and it is difficult to view on a cell phone.

Instructions on how to use zoom can be found here: then click on "How to Sign In" for step-by-step instructions.  If you are accessing zoom for the first time on your computer, you will need to install the software. If you do not have a computer you can download the app for both iOS  and Android. They are both free to download and have all the features of the web app. If you encounter any difficulties, please contact the HelpDesk at (661) 654 - 4357. We suggest that you have this all working  prior to your appointment or you will need to re-schedule your appointment.
