Counseling & Advising

We have shifted our services to enable social distancing during this unprecedented time. First we want to assure you that we are here for you, although we are not on campus. In light of the COVID-19, we have moved to phone and video conferencing. The good news, is that you can participate in a meeting with us from your own kitchen table – just as we may also be at our kitchen tables!

If you schedule a phone appointment

Be available at your designated appointment time and the Academic Advisor or Counselor will call you as soon as possible during your scheduled time.

If you schedule a Zoom video appointment

Scheduling a zoom appointment affords several benefits including the ability for you to view our computer screen to show you materials and resources. You will be asked whether you would like to use video or only audio.

  • Using your phone
    If you are attending the meeting by phone, you will need to download the ZOOM app. Then, simply open the link sent to you in your confirmation email. The link will look something like this: https://minnstate.zoom.us/advisororcounselornamehere. When the prior appointment is complete, your academic advisor or counselor will start your meeting.
  • Using your laptop
    If you are attending the meeting by laptop, simply open the link sent to you in your confirmation email. It will look something like this: https://minnstate.zoom.us/advisororcounselornamehere. You will receive a prompt to download Zoom and then you will enter into the “waiting room.” When the prior appointment is complete, your academic advisor or counselor will start your meeting.

In the event that you are unable to get Zoom to function on your device, please email your advisor or counselor directly.
