Online Advising

Online Advising for Summer 2016 will be TWR from 11:00am-3:00 pm. Advising will only occur during listed advising hours. To start an online session: 

  • Log into your AppState Gmail account. 
  • Search for studyabroad@appstate.edu in the chat window. This will be the advising email account. 
  • Talk to a study abroad advisor! 

Our office will not offer advising through individual accounts. The purpose for this is so we keep a continuous flow of information occurring and to prevent duplication of efforts.
