If you need help with schedule planning, minors, co-ops, study abroad, changing majors, or degree audits then you will need to schedule a meeting with Katie Torrey using your Michigan Tech Google calendar. Advising meetings are usually 30 minutes long and will be held over Zoom. Katie will provide a Zoom link for the meeting when she receives your meeting request or you can set up your own Zoom link.
Appointments will not be available during busy times because there will be virtual walk-in advising hours instead. Walk-in advising times and Zoom links are posted on Katie’s Google calendar. No appointments are needed for walk-in hours. Just stop by.
