What is a virtual appointment?
When you choose to meet with one of our staff via virtual appointment, you get the full advantage of a face-to-face meeting without the hassle of traveling to campus. All virtual appointments are conducted online so you can speak with our counselors via your desktop, laptop, iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch. To access all the features that we provide, we recommend that you use a desktop or a laptop.
If your computer is equipped with a webcam, you will be able to have a face-to-face meeting online with your counselor without stepping into our office.
Virtual meetings allow our staff to share with you what they are working on in real time. Our counselor can review your transcripts, go over major information, or even walk you through an application, and you'll be able to see exactly what they are doing on your computer screen. This way, you can ask questions or point things out to them as they advise you.
You can speak directly to the counselors using Voice over IP so no more dialing using a phone is required to participate. Most laptops now come equipped with built-in speakers and microphone making this process seamless.
