ACADEMIC AND CAREER ADVISING

The Grossman School of Business (GSB) Center for Student Success (CSS) is committed to providing students with support, access to services, and advising.  Because we value the continued health of every student and all within the GSB community, we offer the prudence and flexibility of remote meetings and appointments.  During the Fall 2020 semester, academic, career and study abroad advising will take place remotely via MS Teams. If you are experiencing an extenuating circumstance or personal matter and would like to request an in-person meeting, please e-mail GSBCSS@uvm.edu with your request and availability for the week.

During Add/Drop (August 31st-September 11th), Drop-In Hours will be Monday-Friday 9am-12pm and 1pm-3pm. To ensure access to everyone who needs advising, advisors will not be scheduling appointments during this time.

Starting September 14th, Drop-In Hours will be held Monday-Thursday 9am-12pm and 1pm-3pm. In addition to drop-in hours, advisors will have availability to schedule 30-minute appointments for academic, career and study abroad advising.
