How To Join Zoom Drop-In Career Counseling:

When you join virtual Drop-in hours, you are placed in a Zoom virtual waiting room specific to that counselor. Drop-ins are handled on a first-come, first-served basis. You are not guaranteed to see a counselor during Drop-Ins.

Select from the below list of counselors to meet with based on your college - you will be redirected to Zoom. Students are also welcome to join any wait room if your counselor is not available when you want a Drop-in.
