Before the meeting:

    • Check the Student Success Network (SSN) for any flags/concerns 
    • Be empowered to address any issues that are present, as we will still be working to support students through challenges that they are experiencing 
  • Remind Students to:
  • Review their degree works audit and select appropriate classes and alternatives prior to meeting with you 
  • Check any holds that would prevent them from registering
  • Check Isidore and their UD email for communication from all instructors for the duration of the time they are away from campus
  • Schedule an appointment with you through whichever method you use -- it is the student’s responsibility to initiate this appointment  
  • Be aware of the time (and time zone) of the appointment -- sometimes disruption from normal routine makes us forget to convert time zones, if necessary.

During the meeting:


  • Assure you are speaking to your advisee by verifying the best phone number to use and asking them to confirm their ID number
  • Acknowledge that this is not an ideal situation and stress that you and your advisee are working together
  • Ask students if they have access to a reliable device and have solid access to the Internet.  If they don’t, let them know about some offers from internet service providers, many of whom are now 

After the meeting:

  • Consider sending a follow-up email with a recap of what was discussed, any website links that the student should look at, and any additional information that the student should know at that time. Many of you already practice this technique – it will be particularly valuable during this advising cycle.
  • Continue to keep track of conversations with your students via SSN
